How to setup to use FileMaker API - mjhan300 - 01-26-2016

Fairly new to adding libraries to a standard install of CI. I am trying to use CI along with the FileMaker API. For those who know about the API, there is a "FileMaker" folder (which I add to the /libraries area, I suppose) and it also has a "FileMaker.php" file. In my existing website, I am not using CI. So how do I work the existing files / folders into CI?

I put the "FileMaker" folder into the application/libraries area. But what do I do with the FileMaker.php file? The file contains some include statements that drill into the FileMaker folder structure along with a:

class FileMaker {

So what do I need to do next?

I am using a fairly new FileMaker API build (FM12) along with the latest release of CI (v3.x).

Any help would be appreciated! I have used the FileMaker API without CI with little problem. I just need to know where to start. On a side note, I also needed to add the TCPDF classes to my project. I didn't have a problem with that.
