Using libraries

Now that you know the basic terminology, you can understand how to use a library. To use a library:

  1. Include the library’s header file.
  2. Use the functions and variables in the library.
  3. Link the library into the executable program.

These steps also apply when the object modules aren’t combined into a library. Including a header file and linking the object modules are the basic steps for separate compilation in both C and C++.
