First of all, my background with C++ is mostly in embedded systems and small desktop apps, not big projects with complicated make files.
I am trying to experiment with pure C++ but I am having trouble with the compilation and there doesn’t seem to be documentation on it except https://github.com/numenta/nupic.core/wiki/Development-Workflow
Surely, I can build experiments as new bundled examples but that involves messing with the huge CMakeLists.txt file and then running make && make install. Beside this inconvenience, compilation is pretty inefficient because it checks for all files in nupic.core against changes.
When I tried to use the /build/release contents as external nupic library, I got: In file included from hello.cpp:8:0: include/nupic/algorithms/SpatialPooler.hpp:35:45: fatal error: nupic/math/SparseBinaryMatrix.hpp: No such file or directory #include <nupic/math/SparseBinaryMatrix.hpp>
To me it means that the header I directly include in my hello.cpp is found, but further dependencies are not due to the way they are included?
Could you please explain me more in details why we can not use those library for building a stand-alone applications outside nupic.core-directory?
Which will be done so that we can use them as stand-alone?
Best thanks Binh
The file is there, the problem is that it’s not visible to the compiler due to the absolute include path.
Changing #include <nupic/math/SparseBinaryMatrix.hpp> to #include "../math/SparseBinaryMatrix.hpp" would solve this error, but it is a lengthy fix for all the files so this is why I asked for a proper solution.
