Im installing the Wax Dev docker container via:

docker run -it --name waxdev -v c:\wax:/wax waxteam/dev bash

I then go to run the basic tutorial of creating a simple EOSIO.token from https://developers.eos.io/welcome/v2.2/tutorials/build_your_own_eosio_token

When I get to the point of "Build And Deploy The newt Smart Contract" when I run the following command:

eosio-cpp -abigen -abigen_output=newt.abi -o newt.wasm newt.cpp

I get the following error:

/tmp/newt.cpp:1:10: fatal error: './newt.hpp' file not found
#include "./newt.hpp"
1 error generated.
/usr/local/eosio.cdt/bin/wasm-ld: error: cannot open /tmp/newt.cpp.o: No such file or directory

Is there anything I'm missing here? Google possible permission issues. It just doesn't seem to want to find the header file newt.hpp.

After continuing to search overnight I found the following issue registered against the eosio.cdt github: https://github.com/EOSIO/eosio.cdt/issues/489

You just need to include the -I. after the abigen
