To those who use centos and have stumbled upon this post :

and when compiling your program example.cpp, link to the curl library:

'-o example' creates the executable example instead of the default a.out.

Instead of downloading curl, down libcurl.

curl is just the application, libcurl is what you need for your C++ program

There isn't exactly an 'adding libraries to codeblock for dummies' out there, and I read some guides/explanations but nothing really worked. After a couple hours finally the solution came from here:

Mingw Free Download

Download the 'Win32 Generic' libcurl package. (7.24.0) In Code::Blocks, right click your project and open the build options. Go to 'Linker Settings' and add 'curldll' into the 'Link Libraries' listbox. (image) Go to 'Search Directories' and under 'Compiler' link it to the path of your 'curl-7.24.0-devel-mingw32include' folder. Go to the 'Linker' tab under 'Search Directories', and add the path of your 'curl-7.24.0-devel-mingw32lib' directory. Move all DLLs from your 'curl-7.24.0-devel-mingw32bin' folder into your projects 'bin' folder. Build and enjoy

It doesn't have much explanation but I'd like to know what's going on. Firstly, curl-7.24.0-devel-mingw32include is being adding to the list of standard headers (allowing me to use <curl/curl.h> rather than 'curl/curl.h'), and curl-7.24.0-devel-mingw32lib to the standard library, or something, right?

I need to add the DLL files to my bin folder because this is a dynamic library, but what is the purpose of adding curldll to the Link Libraries? Can someone explain that to me?

Is there a way to make this a static library?

Also, is adding libraries really this awkward?
