The projects you will be working with depend on the "simple_http" library that can be found in the folder "exercise_libs".
We have implemented this Library in Cevelop and the exercise templates have all been configured to correctly reference this library.
### Note for Windows Users
If you are working in Microsoft Windows, you will need to add the `ws2_32` and `wsock32` libraries to the server and your client applications.
Otherwise, you will likely get "undefined reference" errors for the windows socket API.
Follow these steps to add the required libraries (if you are working within Cevelop):
* Right click on the project (for example `w10_template_00_JuliaServer`)
* Select `Properties`
* In the newly opened dialog box navigate to `C/C++ General -> Paths and Symbols`
* Select the `Libraries` tab
* Click on `Add...`
* Type `ws2_32` in the text box
* Check the `Add to all configurations` checkbox
* Confirm the operation using the `OK` button
* Click on `Add...`
* Type `wsock32` in the text box
* Check the `Add to all configurations` checkbox
* Confirm the operation using the `OK` button
* Close the properties dialog box using the `Apply and Close` button
Repeat these steps for the `w10_template_01_SyncJuliaClient` and `w10_template_02_AsyncJuliaClient` projects (and of course the solutions if you choose to use them).
## B. General Setup
Since you will be needing a webservice to call from your solutions to this weeks exercises, we provide you with a basic http server that can render [Julia sets](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Julia_set) as pretty images.
