    Noob question - Implementing INI Parsing class

    Hello, I recently downloaded an INI parsing class, called iniFile.

    There's nothing wrong with the code, but I'm stumped on how to implement it. The source comes with a header file, and a source file containing all the functions and inners of the class.

    When I include the header file into my project, it won't let me compile, becase there are undefined references to all the functions.

    What do I have to do to this cpp file to make it work? Should I compile it into a library and link it to my program, or something else?

    Any help would be appreciated, or if I'm being too vague, gimme a heads up so I can see what else I can do.

    You need to compile the source as well and either make it a library you can link with in all your other projects, or as a one-time type of thing you could just add that source file to your current project making it a multi-sourcefile project.

    Thank you, I compiled it, and it worked fine. I'll keep this in mind for future projects, thanks a lot!
