Compiling c++ code in bash
So, I've recently been handed some code, and I'm trying to compile it. I've had experience with C++ but it was actually quite a few years ago.
Anyway, I was sent a nice tar file with the directory I needed. Unpacked it and I have to .cpp files and like 5 or 6 .h files. Every time I try to compile, I get a load of errors from one specific .h file and my compilation aborts. Before I keep hacking away at this and try to do something crazy like debugging code I didn't write, I want to just double check with people that I'm executing the compilation commands correctly.
I downloaded g++ as my compiler. And I'm running with the command
g++ -c XXXX.cpp
Is this right, do I have to do anything like in FORTRAN where I link the .h files to the main files, or is the fact that the .h files are called in the source files sufficient.
Thanks in advance.

make sure that all the header file and .cpp file is in same directory.
try this command :-
g++ XXXX.cpp -o output_binary_name
you can run you code as below:-
go to terminal:- (chmod it if required)
ubuntu# chmod 777 output_binary_name ubuntu# ./output_binary_name
hope you got the answer.
if you still get the errors please post your errors here.
