Admonition understood - I was just experimenting and wanted the file to be in a specific place without any uncertainty about just what various "look over there" options actually do. The reason for such a mind set is that actual behavior of cpp seems to differ from its documentation, to wit: info cpp :: Header Files::Search Path reads: GCC looks in several different places for headers. On a normal Unix system, if you do not instruct it otherwise, it will look for headers requested with `#include <FILE>' in: /usr/local/include LIBDIR/gcc/TARGET/VERSION/include /usr/TARGET/include /usr/include I'm either missing something very fundamental (which I doubt not at all) or this should be a somewhat serious problem. There are 4944 header files in /usr/local/include/ branch on this system that should be accessible by default but, if my experience with nzbget is any guide, do not seem to be. -- Walter M.
