Of course, this step is only to tell the vscode header file where it is for debugging, but it is not known when GCC compiles. We know that if you use G + + main.CPP - I library_path - O main can be compiled successfully directly, so we just need to tell vscode to use our own defined commands

The second method is to directly set in setting.json:

    "cpp": "cd $dir && g++ $fileName -o $fileNameWithoutExt -I 'header_file_path' && $dir$fileNameWithoutExt",
