Hi, I have just wrote a wrapper class for all my Win32 app''s. When I include the header file, I have to manually insert the source file into all my projects. How would I not have to do this? At first, I thought I might have to make a .dll or .lib, Is this the right way to do it, or should I just define the class in the header file? Hey man, I don''t wanna sound like a queer or nothin'' but i think unicorns kick ass! -> Orgasmo.

the normal way to do this is to compile the .cpp file to an object file, then add this to the link phase. In visual C++ this is done automatically by adding the cpp file to your project. If the class is a wrapper, you may want to consider just making everything inline. This is normally done by just adding the body in the class definition.

class foo {
int x;
void reset() {x=0;}

foo bar;

in the above example when the compiler sees bar.reset() it replaces it with {bar.x=0;} inline functions are almost like macros except that the compiler is aware of them and can work a good bit more magic upon them.
