Sample text

If you are at work and using a shared server, the odds are low that you have superuser rights, and so you won’t be able to provide the password needed to do the last step in the script as superuser. In that case, hold your breath until the next section. Using libraries from source | 35 Did it install? Here’s a short program to try finding that 95% confidence interval using GSL functions; try it and see if you can get it linked and running: Example 2-3. Redoing Example 2-1 with the GSL. 96]: %g\n", 1-2*bottom_tail); } To use the library you just installed, you’ll need to modify your makefile to specify the libraries and their locations.

Using makefiles The makefile provides a resolution to all this endless tweaking. It is basically an organized set of variables and shell scripts. The POSIX-standard make program reads the makefile for instructions and variables, and then assembles the long and tedious command lines for us. After this segment, there will be little reason to call the compiler directly. In “Makefiles versus shell scripts” on page 78, I’ll cover a few more details about the makefile; here, I’m going to show you the smallest possible makefile that will compile a basic program that depends on a library.

About that always: there is virtually no cost to running a program under the debugger. Nor is the debugger just something to pull out when something broke. ’'1 It’s great being able to pause anywhere, increase the verbosity level with a quick print verbose++, force out of a for (int i=0; i< 10; i++) loop via print i = 100 and continue, or test a function by throwing a series of test inputs at it. The fans of interactive languages are right that interacting with your code improves the development process all the way along; they just never got to the debugging chapter in the C textbook, and so never realized that all of those interactive habits apply to C as well.
