Whats exact problem for grabbing appropriate header / src files from another project and use them in your current one ? You can add header,src files in the new project, include appropriate header file in current project and then use that particular function..

otherwise simple solution like following for just example :

/**************************** PROJ1 ************************************/

//*****main1.cpp******

#include <stdio.h>
#include "func_def.h"

void main()
{
fun();
}

/****** func_def.c ********/
void fun()
{
printf(".....");
}

/*************************** END OF PROJ1 ******************************/

If this project resides in : C:\Pro1
================================================== =========================

Now project 2:

/******************************* PROJ2 ********************************/
//******main1.cpp****

#include <stdio.h>
#include "..\pro1\func_def.h"   //include header file like this

void main()
{
fun();
}

/***************************** END OF PROJ2 ****************************/

Hope this helps

May I use namespace to solve it?

mahesh1402Commented:
well but with namespace also you need header and class src files to be present in your project or path...namespace will be more useful if you have classes with same name and you want to use all in your project...above described method is simplest way to achieve this..all you need is to just add header and src file in your project..include header file in src file where you want to use particular function..

A standard way to allow multiple applications to use the same functions is to place the functions in a dll.
Create a third project, put the .cpp/.h files for the shared functions into that project (remove from the project they are currently in).
