Hi,
What is the difference between .h and .hh files?
I know both are extensions for header files but I have both type of files in my environement.
Is it got to do with third party library?

Thanks

It is just a convention used by your library vendor. You might find that they put their C++ stuff in .hh headers. You might find that they put headers which you are not supposed to include directly yourself in the .hh files.

Hi dkamdar,
The C/C++ preprocessor isn't picky. It will include anything that is in the include path. So, naming is just a convention.

Cheers!
