    Question A couple of Questions

    I have recently started programming in C++. I can create simple console programs like calculators, guess the number games, etc. But I want to do more than that. So I have a couple of questions

    When I compile a project, are all of the files in it compiled into one executable?

    If so how do I include these other files? with #include?

    Does anyone know of a good tutorial explaining all this?

    How do I make Win32 (I guess thats what you call them) programs. Just something simple like a calculator. My compiler,Dev-C++, has a template to open a simple window but I cant manage to put any content in it. Does anyone know of a good tutorial for this?

    Thanks

    Yes.

    //If so how do I include these other files? with #include?
    yes, as far as .h files.

    >>Does anyone know of a good tutorial explaining all this?
    Sunlight has excellent Win32 tutorials.

    I've never really used Dev C++, but with MSVC you choose to create a Win32 App from the File menu, look for something similar in your IDE. Maybe check out the compiler's help file or their website's FAQ.

    You can add bitmaps, and other various data formats into resource templates.
