    CodeBlocks IDE file management

    Curious if anyone knows a way to make sub folders appear in sources and headers so I can better group my project. Looks like I might just have a billion cpp files floating around way down the road by that I mean years, but I would love if I could keep it clean to a point. At least before I regret it and end up as grumpy as some of you. (no offense grumpy at least not intended)

    There is no reason to --and good reason NOT to-- have all your files in one project.

    Really, start new projects, import only the needed files.
    Organize your on-disk heirarchy by projects, 1 project, 1 folder.

    It's not code::blocks that needs new organizational skills....

    Huh? I couldn't imagine 1 directory per project... no matter how small my code is I have at least 2-3 dirs for sources.

    You just need to create these directories on disk, then add these files again, and all directories will appear.
    I never put signature, but I decided to make an exception.

    There is also an option to create virtual directories in CodeBlocks. Those appear in the IDE but don't exist really!
    Devoted my life to programming...
