Shouldn't CSFML use CSFML as include directory?
« on: September 11, 2017, 08:10:45 pm »
Currently CSFML uses "SFML" as include directory. Which means, when you install SFML and CSFML the two include directories get mixed into each other.

Since they both use different header extensions it's not really an issue, but I feel it's not a very clean solution.

Wouldn't using "CSFML" make more sense?

I don't think so. The library is still named SFML, even in other languages. Look at the prefix used in CSFML: it's "sf", not "csf". Since there's no file conflict, I think it makes more sense to use "SFML".
