The problem seems to be that people make things more complicated than they need to be.

This was C so there's only so much you can do about it, but why everyone doesn't just make C++ libs as pure HPP files is beyond me. The extra build complexity is not worth the little bit of extra code hiding you can get by using cpp files. With an HPP you just include the heckin thing.

I mean i get it if your code is proprietary and you want to distribute a static lib you need CPP files, but for anything else don't make it more complicated.

Again, freetype is C so I don't know what they could have done, but for CPP if you work your library right it is easy to build.

It's something that seems like it needs to be in the language. C needs an equiv of an HPP file.
