Using LibRaw directly within project


I was wondering if it is possible to use the LibRaw sources directly within another project without building a library first, mostly for better debugging purposes (like using GDB).

On my system (win7 with mingw and eclipse cdt) I tried both adding the folders (libraw, src, internal and dcraw) to the source directory and somewhere else and added necessary libraries (-lm and -lws2_32). When adding into source file and to build path, everything gets build in no particular include order so I get errors like

..\src\libraw\internal\wf_filtering.cpp:827:22: error: 'libraw_internal_data' was not declared in this scope
..\src\libraw\internal\dcb_demosaicing.c:44:12: error: expected '=', ',', ';', 'asm' or '__attribute__' before 'dcb_ver'
I think because it is not compiled in the order it is included and the things loose their context

But when I do this outside source file (so the things don't get build), including is fine but in the end I get a

undefined reference to `LibRaw::LibRaw(unsigned int)'

Error because the libraw_cxx.cpp file is not build.


You need additional define

You need additional define LIBRAW_LIBRARY_BUILD to build the library

No, I don't want to build

No, I don't want to build libraw as a library, I want it to run from within the project like normal source code for debugging purposes like using gdb.

You definitely need this

You definitely need this define for compiling libraw sources.

Also, you should not compile

Also, you should not compile *all sources*
Both dcb-demosaic and wf-debanding are #included into demosaic-packs.cpp
