Please explain the stages of the compiling process.
Can a function(not main) defined in one separate file be compiled into a exe or is it possible only to be compiled to a object file.
During a Separate compiling process are the individual source files compiled all the way to be .exes or only to the stage of .objs and then linked using the linker to create the final application
Can somebody tell me what are libraries in C++ and of what they consist of? Do they consist of separate compiled executable programs or object files
