I am about to learn about how I can use make to build for example a complete game or system with lots of files with code.
I remember when glfw was more easy to setup manually. Now I have problems with the documentation on a Linux machine (debian).
How do I setup so that I can run this manually without Cmake?
I want to learn the beauty of make when checking dependencies and so on. Therefore I want to have total control with simple makefiles in the beginning
download glfw, unzip, and place include/GLFW-folder in my 3pp folder
Generate glad.zip file and place them correctly
installing libglfw3 and libglfw3 - do I need them when downloading it?
which flags in makefile should I use?
-lglad? glad.c? -glfw3
suppose I have a main.cpp with the glfw example code with glad.
I have a Makefile in same folder
Thanks for debian help with this. Maybe there can be a more straightforward approach on website.
Or am I stupid who doesnt use the cmake approach? It’s so damn big, I totally loose control over that.
Think I got it, realised I can still have an own makefile while using cmake to build glfw for example.
