    Compiling multiple files

    How do you compile your program when it has lots of different files to compile? What I mean by that is the program i want to compile has 'file1.cpp' 'file2.dsw' 'file3.opt' 'file4.dsp' 'file5.h' and i need to compile all those together to make the program, Im useing MinGW compiler what would i type to do this?

    Sorry if I didnt make any sense.

    dsw, dsp are Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0 project files. To use them you need MS VC++6.
    the file1.cpp IS the source code, the C++. You may easily open it with any text editor, or IDE and edit the code. To compile you may use g++, borland's compilers, or MS compilers, but make sure the code is compatible with those compilers.
    You only need the *.c, *.cpp, *.h, *.hpp files to create your program. Any other files are only auxiliaries, to make you life easier.
