I'm trying to organize the code files on a project I am working on just now, currently I have all the files in the same directory and these files are in different 'filters' in my visual c++ project (visual c++ express 2008) seperating them into there different modules.
It's not that big of a problem them being all in the same directory but when I want to use the library I need all the headers of the project in one directory and all the source files in another, is there any way to do this in visual c++ or whats the normal way of doing this?
I have no idea why you'd need all the source files in the same directory. That shouldn't matter. Headers you can put wherever you like, just adjust the Additional Include Directories accordingly. Similar for .libs and the Additional Library Directories.
thanks for your reply, would I be better to just leave all the files in the project directory until I've finished the project or would it be better to separate them? say I wanted to change a directory name, would it mean I would have to reload all the files again?
