Hi,

I would like to know how to get inline functions to work in VC++.

My header file contains...
int MyFunc( DWORD X );

The CPP source looks like this...
inline int MyFunc( DWORD X )
{
   return X * X;                      
}

Now other CPP files have include the header file with MyFunc decalartion. All the files and header files are part if the project.

When I compile, the compile succeeds, but a link error
Undefined external int __fastcall MyFunc....
is reported.

I am compiling with Maximise Speed, Pentium, __fastcall
settings.

Any suggestions as to how I can get inline functions working?

Thankx in advance,
Mark

Yes, you need to have

inline int MyFunc( DWORD X )
{
   return X * X;                      
}

In your header file, NOT your source file.
