Projects and Workspaces->The Project Tree->Source/Dependency Files

Your program code will consist of one or more text files which will contain your C and assembler code.  In the following paragraphs we will refer to two types of files:

Source files are those which contain the bulk of your C and/or assembler code.  Dependency files are those which in general contain information that needs to be shared between your source files such as definitions, function prototypes, assembler macros, etc.  The distinguishing factor between source files and dependency files is that dependency files are included in a project by virtue of an include directive - either #include for C or INCLUDE for assembler.  You therefore only need to add source files to your project - dependency files look after themselves.
