Hi,
I'm using g++ and can't find the right flags/procedure to compile/use a class I wrote with seperate header and implementation files.

Is this a template class?

The following is a make file which can be used on a UNIX system to compile with g++ (you can of course issue the same commands from the command line):

# make file comment

executablefilename: source1.o source2.o cpstring.o
      g++ -o executablefilename source1.o source2.o cpstring.o
source2.o: source2.cpp
      g++ -c source2.cpp
source1.o: source1.cpp
      g++ -c source1.cpp
cpstring.o: cpstring.cpp
      g++ -c cpstring.cpp


as far as the header files go, you will have them #included in your .cpp files.

As an addendum to my answer, if you decide to use a make file they must follow a strict format which includes tabs which did not show up in my copy/paste.

The above makefile is very limited.  It doesn't handle include files in different directories, libraries, templates, or any compiler options.

Ah, that's perfect.
Thanks nbell.
sosedada, no, it's just a regular class.  Before I asked the question I waded through a few of the previous ones and it saw something about template classes being some sort of a special exception but nope, just a plain old class.
Thanks guys.
