(Assuming you have a compiled addin...)

Place it in the directory \bin\addins  under your PellesC installation.

Next start POIDE and click on Tools/Customize/Addins... you should see it listed there.  Check it's little box and away you go.

Thanks!  BTW was I really off base, or is there really no howto on this?

Actually no.  I just did a quick flip through the POIDE help files and nothing leapt out at me.  I came across it because the first thing I do when intalling any new software is go through every single menu item and see what's what...

Download Add-In SDK.
Read PellesC\bin\help\addin.chm
Add that help-file to help menu.

Actually "How to install an AddIn" isn't in the AddIn SDK either.

It's all about "How to create an AddIn".

pardon, but it is!

look on the frontpage of the Add-In SDK Help
Code: [Select]
"citation"
Pelles C Add-In SDK
This help file contains information about the add-in API for the IDE in Pelles C. An add-in is built like a DLL and placed in the folder Addins, under the folder Bin (where Pelles C is installed). Note that the IDE is looking for installed add-ins during startup....

Yes, I saw that... but it's only half the information our friend needed... there's still the matter of activating it in the Tools\Customize\AddIns panel.

Please, I'm not trying to start some kind of contest here.  Neither you nor your favorite language (and mine) are under attack.  I merely agreed with the OP who pointed out that no concise explaination of this feature existed in the POIDE help files and helped him complete the task.

@ldblake
i dont feel attacked, i hope you don't feel also ;-) and we will not be pedantic yet isn't it.

@all
at this point i can't resist to say very very LOUD :
PellesC has the best documentation of all freeware or open source projects i've ever seen and fighted through ! It's well thought out, nicely layoutet and *nearly* complete.
THANKS Pelle !

In any event, I have found all that I need to move forward.  Thank you both for helping me!

And I must agree that PellesC is a remarkable and complete offering.

Thanks to ALL who support it.

Of course it is... I went through a lot of implementations looking for the best C compiler I could find... and here I am  :lol:

how to apply a "patch" to an addin?
« Reply #11 on: May 04, 2006, 06:01:42 am »
There is an addin here with a patch. Normally I would substitute the source.c file and recompile the dll but what do I do with the small 2k
patch file? I searched the help file, honest.
