A Simple C Project

First let's create a very simple C project, which will be built by the gnu auto tools lateron. The first step is to create a home directory for the whole project.
# mkdir testproj
# cd testproj
Next the sample source files are created. They are located in the subdirectory 'src' in order not to mix them up with the other files created shortly.
# mkdir src
# touch src/main.cpp
# touch src/testproj.h
The contents of both files is:


#include <stdio.h>
#include "testproj.h"

int main(int)


#define HELLO_WORLD "Hello world!\n"

Compiling this manually is quite simple. But here the gnu auto tools should do the job, which is described in the next chapters.
