Hello everyone, when i realised that one single .cpp file won't work for a game, i started to make an enemy class like this :


#ifndef Enemy_h
#define Enemy_h

class Enemy {
   irr::scene::IAnimatedMeshSceneNode Node;
   void setNode (irr::scene::IAnimatedMeshSceneNode *node);
   irr::scene::IAnimatedMeshSceneNode getNode(void);



#include "Enemy.h"

void Enemy::setNode(irr::scene::IAnimatedMeshSceneNode *node)
   Node = node;
irr::scene::IAnimatedMeshSceneNode Enemy::getNode(void)
   return Node;


#include <irrlicht.h>
#include <windows.h>
#include <irrKlang.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <time.h>
#include "Enemy.h"
#pragma comment(lib, "irrKlang.lib")
#pragma comment(lib, "Irrlicht.lib")
using namespace irr;
using namespace audio;

And the problem is, that enemy.h and enemy.cpp cannot use libraries, that is included in the main.cpp. So my question is, how to easily solve this problem, to avoid multiple header inclusion and so on..

And also, should i return *IAnimatedMeshSceneNode or just IAnimatedMeshSceneNode?

If you're thinking you can't #include libraries in Enemy.cpp that are used in main.cpp, you're wrong. The whole purpose of the #ifndef #define dance is to allow exactly that. The library header files you include do the same thing, allowing them to be #included more than once; only the first inclusion has any effect.

But if somebody forgets the #ifndef #define stuff, well, double #inclusion can cause a lot of weird error messages. Fortunately, standard headers definitely don't do that.
