PS addition to previous mail, another rather basic question:
Step 3 says:
"Check your path to make sure you are using your wxWidgets and not the default
I assume this means that $PATH should lead to my wxWidgets 2.9.3 library and
not any other version,
and presumably the directories in $PATH are searched in the order in which they
appear when shown
by "echo $PATH".
In my case this is:
I have built wxWidgets in a directory under my user and from looking at the g++
commands issued, and
also from trying to decrypt a little of one of the demo makefiles
". . .
. . .
LIBDIRNAME = $(wx_top_builddir)/lib
. . ."
from this I conclude I need the path to point to this
But what should be included in the path?
The directory containing 'lib' (ie. .../build-cocoa-debug),
or including the lib directory itself (ie. .../build-cocoa-debug/lib),
or something else?
Then, how to ensure my path is not leading to the "default Mac one"?
Taking a look for wx* in the PATH directories I find that they contain some
things which look
suspiciously like they may relate to an earlier wxWidgets version (eg.
Henrys-iMac:~ henrylockyer$ ls /usr/bin/wx* /bin/wx* /usr/sbin/wx*
ls: /bin/wx*: No such file or directory
ls: /usr/local/bin/wx*: No such file or directory
ls: /usr/sbin/wx*: No such file or directory
/usr/bin/wxperl_overload /usr/bin/wxperl_xspp /usr/bin/wxrc
It seems to be mostly to do with 'wxperl', but:
- Is there in fact something here which will interfere with wxHaskell 0.9 /
wxWidgets 2.9.3 in general ?
- Is looking for things beginning with "wx" sufficient to find "the default Mac
one" in the path?
- If the items listed are significant then what to do about them without
causing other problems?
- Include the wxWidgets 2.9.3 lib directory path into the first searched path
file as the first searched path, ie. before /usr/bin ?
