I wanted to get a better understanding of writing my own makefiles instead of letting AS6 do all the work.  I used the makefil template included with WINAVR to get me started.  My test case is the Fleury LCD code (lcd.c and lcd.h), which I have placed in the same directory as my makefile and main c code.  The code will properly compile in AS6 (without the use of an external makefile) and if I include the lcd.h in my main c code I can compile using the windows command prompt and AS6 with the external makefile. 

 

However, I don't think I should have to "include lcd.h" in my main c program because lcd.c is listed as a source my makefile.  Fleury's lcd.c does include the lcd.h, why won't the header files for the c sources be included by my makefile as it stands?

Code:

#include <avr/io.h>
#include <util/delay.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <string.h>
//#include "lcd.h"  <=== I don't think I should need this with lcd.c listed as a source in my makefile
int n = 123;    //random # to simulate A2D
double d = 1;   //double variable

int main(void)
{
    lcd_init(LCD_DISP_ON); // initialize lcd, display on, cursor on 
	lcd_clrscr();             // clear screen of lcd 
	lcd_home();               // bring cursor to 0,0
	double n1 = n;             //convert n to double
	d = (n1/255)*5;             //convert to 0-5v
	char buffer [32];           //need a buffer
	sprintf(buffer, "%.2F", d); //convert to 2 decimal precision string
	lcd_puts(buffer);           //put results on lcd
	lcd_gotoxy(strlen(buffer),0);   //go to the next free lcd coordinate
	lcd_puts("V");                  //put a V for volts
}

However, I don't think I should have to "include lcd.h" in my main c program because lcd.c is listed as a source my makefile.  Fleury's lcd.c does include the lcd.h, why won't the header files for the c sources be included by my makefile as it stands?

No, no, no and no. Oh and another "no" just for luck!

 

Think of .c and .h as the following: the .c "implements" and the .h "documents".

 

In the makefile you lists all the files that implement the code. But in the .c files themselves you MUST #include the .h files that document what is in the other .c files that are being accessed.

 

So .h has NOTHING to do with the Makefile. The only thing that might go in the Makefile concerning .h files might be -I statements that tell the compiler where to look for #include'd .h files.

 

As I say a .c file that accesses some code or data in another .c almost always will include a .h that documents the types and interfaces of the things being accessed. You cannot just remove that!

 

If your knowledge of C is still at the level where this kind of thing isn't just second nature to you I'd suggest it may be a little early in your journey of exploration to be concerned about Makefiles anyway. The joy of using IDEs is they hide all this stuff so you can get on and learn the basics of C like why #include of .h are so important.

Thanks, I sort of realized that after I posted.  But, figured I'd wait for some replies to confirm.
