    How to convert the download library to .lib file(0r .dll file) ?

    Hello friends,

    I am making an application for that purpose I downloaded the c++ library and want to use in my application.
    As i am using the S_60 3rd edition with Carbide.
    My problem is that the downloaded library is just like the some folder having no extension and containing some more folder such
    src(containing source code),Example(contains some example),test(contains some more folder) like that....

    I want to include it in my application ,so how can i make it possible ,Should i have to convert it in .lib or .dll form??
    And how i can convert it in that??As I guess i have to past that form in the path

    "C:\Symbian\9.1\S60_3rd\Epoc32\release\winscw\udeb"(for debug mode)

    Can anyone give his valuable advise in this matter .

    Thanks in advance dear.

    Pankaj.

    There is no such thing as "the c++ library". Otherwise, the various plugin packs do not contain libraries for the emulator, so you can use those API-s only on the target devices.

    Sounds to me that you have downloaded the C/C++ source code of a open source library and that means that there is an "easy" way to get the required .lib and/or .dll: compile the library.

    It could be of course that you have downloaded a SDK plug-in and then wizard_hu_ is right.

    Anyhow, if you have downloaded the thing and the resource is publicly available then posting the URL here would have been an efficient way to explain your problem and save us the "pleasure" of guessing.

    The follow Lucian's advice, and try to compile that library with Symbian tools. It will not necessarily be trivial though.

    You cannot expect to simply compile a source code which is not written specifically for Symbian. Try using OpenC/OpenC++ and do a port of the library. Only after the port is completed successfully you can use the library in your project.

    There is a dedicated forum for OpenC, you should post your porting related queries to that forum.
