Compiler Option: -i
Add a path to search for include files


-i < include path >


include path
The directory path, relative or absolute, of where to search for include files.


The -i option allows an additional directory to be used when searching for header files. By default, fbc searches in the current directory, and prefix/inc--in that order--where, prefix is the location where FreeBASIC is installed. A directory specified with the -i option will be searched before these default directories, and when the -i option is used multiple times, fbc will search the directories in the order they are listed on the command-line.

To search in the subdirectory includes first for header files while compiling the source file file.bas, type,

fbc -i includes file.bas
