I wrote some C++ code, put it into a .cpp and .h file (and into the proper folder in the proper libraries folder) and tried to install it as a library, following the instructions from here: http://arduino.cc/en/Guide/Libraries
But the library doesn’t show up in the Sketch/Import Libraries drop-down as indicated it should in those directions.
I wrote a simple sketch and attempted to include the library in the sketch using a #include statement:
and it doesn’t work. Not only do references to the class that’s included in the .h file show up as errors in the sketch, but the #include statement is totally ignored. If I do an utterly wrong #include like:
it doesn’t even flag that as an error. It apparently ignores #include statements that it doesn’t properly reference a valid file.
So, HOW do I properly install my own library and get it recognized by the #include statements?
