    Projects in VC++

    I'm making a game that consists of many card games like blackjack and varities of poker. So far, this is my longest program by far. The problem is my single cpp file is very cluttered and it is becoming hard to find some of my smaller functions. I know VC++ has a way of avoiding this by making seperate source files or modules of something. How are the seperate files linked and how should organize them.

    .h

    just make a file and save as blackjack.h or poker.h from your compiler. then on your main file, under all of your #include s, do:
    #include "c:/directory where header files are/poker.h"
    and so forth, very helpfull, also make sure all of the games are functions, if not already done so, it would be really easy that way.

    They're not header files. I'd like to have different cpp files. I'm pretty sure you can do that.

    Never mind what I just wrote; I misread your post. But do I simply call the functions from blackjack and poker?

    just put the whole function of a card game in a file like poker.h and call it in your main program, and when you need poker, just call it like you normally would. When chop up your program and put it in different files it will compile the same way as when it was in one file, just a little more organized. and when you put a function in a header file, don't do a int main(), include files or anything etc, it's just source code.
