There’s a consistent problem with developing applications of any reasonable size, a problem which has dated back even before the early days of C. The problem is that any application of significance will be composed of several source files. In fact, reasonable applications are often found to be composed of thousands if not hundreds of thousands of files. Back in the day, it was felt (for some reason which escapes me) that it would be poor practice to type “gcc -Wall -o filename.o filename.cpp” several thousand times every time the app needed to be recompiled.
