Either a KDevelop Bug, or my own error;

But, here's the deal. First, I will say that I'm not the most capable
programmer at this point; I'm in like my 3rd course for it at my
Now, I have a rather small program that has two classes, and contains
a few .cpp files and their headers. One class keeps track of 'student-
data', and is basically a container. Another is a hash-table class. I
have a third function file just for the hell of it. (Don't know why...
I like a 'main.cpp' file to be nigh-unto-empty).
Now, having what I was taught is the correct way to handle the
includes for these files, I invoked the build command.
All the files are fine; there are no errors in them. However, make
returns errors about multiple declarations of functions. Being curious,
ran a shell and simply used the 'g++ -o program main.cpp' command.
The program compiled (and runs...) just fine.
So, now even more curious, I tried removing the class .cpp files from
the project's LFV (but left them on the disk). Now, it compiles just
Now, when the program works, this is great - but when I need to run
into and debug code, it's a bit tedious to move around like that.
So my question is this: Is there any reason that having the class's
.cpp files in the 'sources' section of the LFV results in make returning
duplicate function definition errors - while removing them from the
'sources' section of LFV allows a full compile?
