I am a newcomer and I have almost finished my first game but it consists of one source file that is around 6500 lines long. How do I make my game in modules (AI, Physics, etc.) so the game is broken up into many small .cpp files? I can''t find any step by step tutorials on how to link these files together.

That''s hardly OOD and lots & lots of files isn''t a great idea either.

I usually keep related classes together...



#ifndef __NETWORK_H
#define __NETWORK_H

#include "Player.h"
#include <afxtempl.h>



class CNetworkServerDx8;
class CNetworkClientDx8;
class CPacket;

//class definitions...

#endif //__NETWORK_H

#include "stdafx.h"
#include "GameEngine.h"
#include "Network.h"

#ifndef __NETWORK_CPP
#define __NETWORK_CPP



CPacket::CPacket():length(0), packettype(PT_EMPTY), serialnum(0), ecc(0), data(0), m_dwDataSize(0)
data = new BYTE[m_dwDataSize];
/On & on...

#endif __NETWORK_CPP

Thanks for the help. Maybe I used the wrong title but I didn't really know what to call it. OOD just sounded like the appropriate buzzword. I don't really understand how the primary cpp knows which cpp contains the network info. I know the primary cpp will include the network header file (I am not talking about the packet header in the network code just in case you misunderstood).
