Using PCRE library in native node modules
I'm trying to use the PCRE library in native C++ nodejs modules.
#include "pcre\pcrecpp.h" in my cpp file, but I'm getting
e:\nativenode\pcre\pcrecpp.h(334): fatal error C1083: Cannot open include file: 'pcre.h': No such file or directory [E:\nativenode\build\wikiparser.vcxproj] gyp ERR! build error gyp ERR! stack Error: `C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\msbuild.exe ` failed with exit code: 1 gyp ERR! stack at ChildProcess.onExit (C:\Program Files\nodejs\node_modules\ npm\node_modules\node-gyp\lib\build.js:267:23) gyp ERR! stack at ChildProcess.EventEmitter.emit (events.js:98:17) gyp ERR! stack at Process.ChildProcess._handle.onexit (child_process.js:789: 12) gyp ERR!

so I thought the
pcre.h file is just missing, I went in the
PCRE dir and renamed pcre.h.generic to pcre.h ( so the file now exists ), but I'm getting the same error.
My folder looks like this
How I can get it running? Do I need to link the lib somewhere or just including
pcrecpp.h is enought?
It sounds like you are missing the proper include path.
https://github.com/mscdex/node-pcre appears to add the
include_dirs field to gyp so that the build system sees the include:
'include_dirs': [ '.', ],
