    multiple file programming

    I want to learn the multiple file programming in c++, like in C we call it header file,
    what extension we should use in c++?
    When there is need of creating another file?
    Good programming practice in this sense.
    Give me precise information if possible and other reference too so that when I get time I go through that.

    .h and .hpp are commonly used header file extensions in C++.

    This is answered in the FAQ, though beware that the example code is a little outdated, but you should be able to get some idea.

    Why cant we use .cpp

    As we need to use namespace in C++, does the xtension really matters in such cases?

    The extension does not matter, but it is often good to keep to common conventions (and in fact the idea of a file extension is sometimes also a convention in itself on various platforms).
