This is an overview of how the C++ headers are organised in the installation directory for the Base module.
<install-prefix> refers to the path where the SDK is installed.
The default values depends on your operating system and installation:
/usrwhen installing with the packages and
/usr/localwhen building from source code with the deployment step
The headers of the SDK Base module are grouped semantically under high-level folders:
<install-prefix>/include/metavision/sdk ├── base │ ├── events │ └── utils └── other modules...
