g++ -Ipath/to/the/header program.cpp -o executable

-I : Sets the path to the include files.
    -L : Sets the path to the libraries.
    -l : Use this library (eg. -lm to use, -lpthread to use

    You can have multiple -I, -L and -l entries.
    So, your final command should look like this:

    g++ program.cpp -o executable -I /path/to/includes -L /path/to/libraries -l library1 -l library2

Variables for C++ numbers ( % Format Specifiers ):

The % specifiers that you can use in ANSI C are:

    %c char single character
    %d (%i) int signed integer
    %e (%E) float or double exponential format
    %f float or double signed decimal
    %g (%G) float or double use %f or %e as required
    %o int unsigned octal value
    %p pointer address stored in pointer
    %s array of char sequence of characters
    %u int unsigned decimal
    %x (%X) int unsigned hex value

Here is a nice Image Blending program written in C++

 * @function on_trackbar
 * @brief Callback for trackbar
void on_trackbar( int, void* )
 alpha = (double) alpha_slider/alpha_slider_max ;
 beta = ( 1.0 - alpha );

 addWeighted( src1, alpha, src2, beta, 0.0, dst);

 imshow( "ImageBlend", dst );

int main( int argc, char** argv )
 /// Read image ( same size, same type )
 src1 = imread("images/hicks01.jpg");
 src2 = imread("images/hicks02.jpg");

 if( ! ) { printf("Error loading src1 \n"); return -1; }
 if( ! ) { printf("Error loading src2 \n"); return -1; }

 /// Initialize values
 alpha_slider = 0;

 /// Create Windows
 namedWindow("ImageBlend", 1);

 /// Create Trackbars
 char TrackbarName[50];
 sprintf( TrackbarName, "Alpha Control is 1/100 of This Value");

 createTrackbar( TrackbarName, "ImageBlend", &alpha_slider, alpha_slider_max, on_trackbar );

 /// Show some stuff
 on_trackbar( alpha_slider, 0 );

 /// Wait until user press some key
 return 0;
