Once you have generated the C source file for your extension, you must compile the source code to create the extension.
  • Use a compiler for C that is supported by the API to compile your extension.
  • Before building your extension you should have a .c source file that represents your extension. After compiling the .c file you will have a set of files with the same name as the .c files but with the extension .ifx.
  • For example, after compiling the source code for the extension fciExtension.c, your C compiler will create the corresponding extension: fciExtension.ifx.
  • The details of compiling your source code are not included here. Consult your compiler documentation for information.
