# Using G++ to compile multiple .cpp and .h files

C++Server Side ProgrammingProgramming

To compile multiple files like file_name.h, or file_name.cpp at once, we can use the files like a list one after another. The syntax will be like this −

g++ abc.h xyz.cpp

To run the program, we can use this −

./a.out

## Example

float area(float r){
return (3.1415*r*r); //area of a circle
}
float area(float l, float w){
return (l * w); //area of a rectangle
}

## Example

#include <iostream>
#include "area.h"
using namespace std;
main(){
cout << "Area of circle with radius 2.5 is: " << area(2.5) << endl;
cout << "Area of rectangle with length and width are 5 and 7 is: " << area(5, 7) << endl;
}

## Output

$g++ area.h find_area.cpp$ ./a.out
Area of circle with radius 2.5 is: 19.6344
Area of rectangle with length and width are 5 and 7 is: 35
