Directory structure for a project

Postby » Thu Feb 23, 2006 1:48 am


First of all, thank you for your journal. :D
I am a french reader so don't be afraid by my english.

I would like to read an article about the way to make a good directory structure for a large software project and how to configure C++Builder projects manager options to match up.

What do you think about that ?

Thanks again

I think very good, I recently used this structure

ProjectGroupName\Src -- only .bpr files in here (one for each module)
ProjectGroupName\Src\Core -- core files neccessary for main project to run
ProjectGroupName\Src\Lib -- extra .cpp / .h files that can be reused in future projects

ProjectGroupName\Release -- dlls and exes go here when building inner projects

I know it is quite an old post but i believe this question could also be answered by suggesting a book

Large-Sale C++ Software Design by John Lakos from addison-wesley it describes a lot of aspects regarding large C++ projects (as the title suggests)
