    including an .h file

    I have looked through some of the posts and understand how to include a .h file. I have my .cpp and .h file saved in the same place but when I compile I get the error that my .h file doesn't exsist??!! Any suggestions as to why this might be happening??

    Code:
    #include <string>
    #include<iostream>
    #include "avlbst.h"
    
    using namespace std;
    int item;
    
    int main (){
    
    	cout<< "Enter the item that you would like to place in the Binary Search Tree"<< endl;
    
    		cin >> item;
    
    		while (cin ){
    			AVLBST.AVLInsert(item);
    			AVLBST.PrettyPrint();
    		}
    
    		return 0;
    }

    link?

    i dont know what compiler yuou are using, but it is nessicary in msvc++ to link the file. to do this you do the following


    * have both windows open( your .cpp and your .h )

    * then go to project<<add to project<< then files, and you should see your header file there ... include it.

    * to make sure they are together, click in th workspace bar below it says file view click on that and double click the project name it should drop down for ya
