I'm trying to modify an existing C++ application, and I end up in header hell:
In my newly created *.h file, I need to add an attribute to my new class, this new attribute being of the type "Timer", defined in "Timer.h".
This means that I need to add
#include "Timer.h" at the beginning of my header file, but when I do that, I get error messages, referring to the file (don't laugh)
c:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\Professional\VC\Tools\MSVC\14.11.25503\include\cwctype, as if I've messed up a central file, just by adding a reference to a file, not even closely related to that central file, in other words, I've arrived in header hell :-)
The software I'm now working on, is very new, and there's here the mentality "As long as it works, it's OK", so nobody ever cared about the quality/readability/maintainability/..., so when a new developer arrives (like me), it's easy to fall into the header problem.
So my question: does anybody know about a graphical tool, which can read Visual Studio projects/solutions, read their
#include directives, and from that, make a graph of those, so that in case of the mentioned problems, I can see what's the best way to avoid the mentioned problems?
Thanks in advance
