This is a list of additional files to to compile to object files
if you like to live dangerously, which are dependencies of the
above.  I inlined them with #includes for reasons I'll explain in
a moment.

test> ls inc/*.cxx
inc/CubeView.cxx          inc/keyboard_ui.cxx    inc/UnknownImage.cxx
inc/CubeViewUI.cxx        inc/list_visuals.cxx
inc/fracviewer_4test.cxx  inc/mandelbrot_ui.cxx

These are the files that need the object files thus generated if
they aren't included from an 'inc' directory as I did.

test> grep inc/ *
color_chooser.cxx:#include "inc/list_visuals.cxx"
  \headers are not compiled, CubeMain.cxx:#include "inc/CubeViewUI.h"
CubeMain.cxx:#include "inc/CubeViewUI.cxx"
CubeMain.cxx:#include "inc/CubeView.cxx"
  \headers are not compiled, fractals.cxx:#include "inc/fracviewer_4test.h"
fractals.cxx:#include "inc/fracviewer_4test.cxx"
glpuzzle.cxx:#include "inc/trackball.c"
image.cxx:#include "inc/list_visuals.cxx"
image_file.cxx:#include "inc/UnknownImage.cxx"
image_file.cxx~:#include "inc/UnknownImage.cxx"
image_file.fl:decl {\#include \"inc/UnknownImage.cxx\"}
jpeg_image.cxx:#include "inc/list_visuals.cxx"
keyboard.cxx:#include "inc/keyboard_ui.cxx"
  \headers are not compiled, mandelbrot.cxx:#include "inc/mandelbrot_ui.h"
mandelbrot.cxx:#include "inc/mandelbrot_ui.cxx"


If you have problems with duplicate definitions, that is,
similarly named objects in the main libs getting linked instead
of the version you need in the test folder, I'd recommend #including
the cxx files so you can directly control which code you are running.

It's been a while but I think there were at least two instances of
that happening and there may also have been problems with the 'c' file
above.  Sorry, but I can't remember.  Alzheimers + all the other stuff
kinda wiped my memory out.  ;-)

So if you inline the test dependecies as I did (with no dependencies
other than on the fltk2 libs for ANY object compiled), #include the
cxx files as well as the headers and your makefile will only link one
object per executable.

TIP: makeinclude defines what the compiler and linker do, much as
you'd select parameters for a guitar amp cabinet in a DSP.  Pretty
cool idea.  I ripped it off in my own makefile generator.  :-)

But the FIRST file named is the output as a result of this method. I
think some of the themes or plugins were broken because the wrong
file was listed first, others were broken for other reasons.


PS. The reason I don't upload my own makefile is because it would NOT
work with a stock system at all.  You'd have to download and install
my entire version 2, and I'm not ready to create an installer at this
time -- too much testing and variables to check out and there are still
a few bugs to work out, namely...

1. The cpu time hogging in fluid when you create a TabGroup.
2. The scrollbars in HelpView not updating automatically.

And there may be some others.
