    Arrow how do I...

    I'm having a problem, For bigger projects I want to be able to have source files link from one another. I'm kind of new to C++ so this may be a dum question.(I just started taking programming methods, thanks to LCC. [A college in oregon]) but is there a way to have source files link together and how?

    Just #include the source files in one main file which you can compile.

    e.g.
    #include <abc.cpp>
    #include <anothersourcefile.cpp>
    etc.

    I don't think that you should include CPP files this way but it is a band aid for your problem. What is probably best is learning how your compiler works, so you can make projects with multiple files and let the linker take care of it when you compile.

    There are places to help you. Google your compiler or read a newsgroup.

    just a note I use a compiler called bloodshed device,
    I havent heard of 'bloodshed device', but are you talking about Bloodshed's Dev-C++ IDE?

    It has a project something or other but i don't know how to use it...
    Create a new project, place your source files in that project. You will also need to have header files, methinks.

    get a new compiler man.
    If lsctt is using Dev-C++ 4.9.9.2, then there probably is no need to. It comes with the MinGW port of GCC 3.4.2, and that compiler is reasonably standards compliant.

    You can do that by abandoning Dev-C++ and running g++ from the command line... but why not use projects properly? Have you ever got a Dev-C++ project to work?

    Well, try this:

    1. File -> New -> Project
    Choose empty project. Ensure "C++ Project" radio button is selected. Choose a suitable name and click Ok.
    Select a location to create the project and its .dev file.

    2. File -> New -> Source File
    Add to project, give it a suitable name. Enter this:
    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    
    int main()
    {
    	std::cout << "Hello world!" << std::endl;
    	std::cin.get();
    }
    3. Compile and run.
