    For one, you can't compile a windows program without the consol window coming up unless you use a project, and you need a project in order to do linking parameters like -s.
    What compiler are you using?

    Just the layout of the things I guess. Nothing major.

    Projects in an IDE allow you to compile .cpp files together. Without that ability all your code is in .h or your one main cpp file.

    You COULD program with everything in one file, but just don't unless it is some tiny thing.

    I have some code, but i'm not sure if it's a good, or the right start to a project...

    Code:
    //Human.h
    #ifndef _HUMAN_
    #define _HUMAN_
    
    namespace Anatomy 
    {
        class Human
        {
            public:

    If that's your code then you're missing some closing curly braces (}).

    BTW, names beginning with and underscore followed by an uppercase letter or another underscore are reserved by the implementation.

    > what would i consist [sic] in my class?
    Especially since humans inspire a lot of subjects, that would depend largely on what kind of data is important to you. Lots of times, class design is meant to elegantly map back to real life in some way, but never perfectly. Do you want to represent a human biologically or is it just a record of names, ages and gender?

    As far as projects go, there have been fine explanations already. Developing a real-world app is always a lot of work, so IDE's exist to help keep work organized and productive by providing a compiler, editor, and debugger (at least) all together. A project is essentially what those apps are.
