I'm updating a Managed C++ library from OCCT 7.4.0 to to 7.5.2. The guy that did the 7.4.0 work for us as left in the meantime and I'm a bit rusty in the C/C++ field. But I managed to compile OCCT 7.5.2 successfully. When recompiling our own library though using OCCT 7.5.2, I'm stuck as the precompiler refuses to find (at least some) *.lxx files, for instance TCollection_AsciiString.lxx. Why aren't the lxx's file found while the hxx files are?
In order to get as far as I did I had to add "." as a search folder for the precompiler. This was my solution for the fact that in 7.5 files like TCollection_. have moved to src/TCollection/ where in 7.4.0 they were found directly in the inc/ folder. And files in a subdirectory of src do not specify their own path when including a file that is in the same directory. TCollection_AsciiString.hxx for example does this:
The hxx and lxx file are in the same directory. I've added "." as a search folder. Why isn't the lxx file found even though the hxx file was? What should I do to fix this? I do not want to change the OCCT code.
I'm using Visual Studio 2019 to build all this for x64, both OCCT and our own library.
The mentioned files are really where I said they are. Executing
dir OpenCASCADE-7.5.2-vc14-64\opencascade-7.5.2\src\TCollection\TCollection_AsciiString.* gives:
Volume in drive C is Windows Volume Serial Number is 740E-0943 Directory of [snip]\OpenCASCADE-7.5.2-vc14-64\opencascade-7.5.2\src\TCollection 13-08-2021 14:02 46,834 TCollection_AsciiString.cxx 13-08-2021 14:02 29,649 TCollection_AsciiString.hxx 13-08-2021 14:02 4,948 TCollection_AsciiString.lxx
Your help is much appreciated!
