Building and configuring

To build the example:

  • You can build the example from your IDE or the command line.

    If you use an IDE, import the bld.inf file of the example into your IDE, and use the build command of the IDE.

    If you use the command line, open a command prompt, and set the current directory to the source code directory of the example. You can then build the example with the SBSv1 build tools with the following commands:

    bldmake bldfiles

    abld build

  • For the emulator, the example builds an executable called httpexampleclient.exe in the epoc32\release\winscw\<udeb or urel>\ folder.
