I have used separate header files in the Web IDE before, but I have to admit to having shoe-horned all my code into the .INO file every time. Yes, not great programming style I know.
So, now, a completely new program, so let’s do it right and put my support functions in a separate library file.
In my INO file I have my includes
But when I compile I get shoals of errors as if ZC_LIB.cpp has never heard of all the built in data types etc. For example:
ZC_Lib.cpp:67:3: ‘uint8_t’ was not declared in this scope
Line 67 contains:
uint8_t calculatedCkSum = 0;
Even if I convert it to
byte calculatedCkSum = 0;
Still get the error, it just says byte is an unknown.
Some kind of inheritance issue? I’m sure that - as this is my first try at this - I am suffering a fundamental misunderstanding of how this should work - but can’t find anything that seems to apply. Should that ZC_Lib file be a .INO? Cant find a way to rename it if so…
Thanks any any help with this.
