When I try to compile I get this error:

fatal error: wiringPi.h: No such file or directory 
#include < wiringPi.h>

enter image description here

The code is:

enter image description here

My includes are:

#include < wiringPi.h>
#include < stdio.h>

#define LEDPIN 0 

I have double and triple checked the spelling on everything, and WiringPi is installed. What am I missing?


The problem is the space after the <. The system is looking for a file called " wiringPi.h" rather than "wiringPi.h".

I.e. use

#include <wiringPi.h>
#include <stdio.h>

The space after < causes problem. #include < wiringPi.h> ==> Wrong #include <wiringPi.h> ==> Correct. Some sample codes at various sites are having this typo error. :-)


As the answer is already given I just want to share that you can use #include if you are using C++ (and not C). It will import all the libraries in the beginning. However, it will give increase the compilation time for the program.
