"Include" Files

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

FlexPDE supports the C-language mechanism of including external files in the problem descriptor.  The statement


#INCLUDE  "filename"  


will cause the named file to be included bodily in the descriptor in place of the #INCLUDE "filename" statement.  


If the file does not reside in the same folder as the descriptor, the full path to the file must be given.


An include statement can be placed anywhere in the descriptor, but for readability it should be placed on its own line.


This facility can be used to insert common definition groups in several descriptors.


Note: Although FlexPDE is not case sensitive, the operating system which is being asked for the included file may be case sensitive.  The quoted file name must conform to the usage of the operating system.
