HELP Clever Resource Ids , Resource Compiler

Post by ryan_hard.. » Wed, 30 Aug 2000 04:00:00

I would like to use * (multiplication) when defining a resource Id
#define ID_Location(n) (20*n)

in a string table

ID_Location(0) "Location 0"
ID_Location(1) "Location 1"

However the resource compiler does not know how to cope with * . The
Macro evaluates to the first number to the left of the expression i.e

The compiler accepts the + sign , why doesnt it accept the * sign.

Can anybody Help / Explain what is going on and how do I solve this.

1. Help: Borland Resource Compiler can't find include files

I am having some trouble with the Resource Compiler which is part of
the Borland C++ 3.0 package.  When it tries to compile the resource
it can not find windows.h or any of the other include files which come
with the package.  If I declare the entire path rather than letting
it search the include path it finds the files and compiles

I have set the include path in the Preferences menu prior to opening
a project.  The manual says these are saved to WIN.INI, but they are
actually saved to WORKSHOP.INI (is there a correction in any of the
on-line files - I couldn't find one).

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.
