Compiling Basic C++ Class

I'm trying to compile a very basic C++ program and there is something wrong. Whatever it is, I'm sure it's very obvious. I have three very short files.


#include <iostream>
#include "Player.h"

using namespace std;

int main()
Player rob;
cout << "Iran" << endl;
return 0;


#ifndef PLAYER_H
#define PLAYER_H

class Player {
int score;



#include "Player.h"

score = 0;

The command I'm using to compile is
g++ main.cpp -o main

And the error I'm being issued by the compiler is:

/tmp/ccexA7vk.o: In function `main':
main.cpp:(.text+0x10): undefined reference to `Player::Player()'
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status

Note: All these files are in the same directory.

As mentioned in the comments, you are not feeding Player.cpp into compiler. You should give all the cpp files to the compiler.

g++ main.cpp Player.cpp -o main
