.hpp File Extension

Developer: N/A
File type: C++ Header File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .hpp. Files with the file extension .hpp can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .hpp files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .hpp file?

HPP files are C++ Header Files or header files that are written in the C++ programming language. These files are mainly categorized as developer files wherein there is a possibility to insert these files to a .CPP source code file, provided the “#include directive” is used. Because of this, HPP files can be used to store component codes that are reusable. In other words, since HPP files are header files, they are also used by programmers for the separation of certain program source code elements into files that can still be used. Most of the time, these files contain subroutines, variables, forward declarations of classes as well as other identifiers. These files can also be used as the C programming language header file default extension because they also make use of the .H extension. There are several applications that can be used to open HPP files such as Apple Xcode, Microsoft Visual Studio 2010, Code::Blocks, MacroMates TextMate, BloodshedSoftware Dev-C++, GNU project C and C++ compiler (GCC), etc.

how to open a .hpp file?

Launch a .hpp file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .hpp file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .hpp files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .hpp file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .hpp file will open the correct application.

applications that open a .hpp file



Code::Blocks is an open-source, cross-platform C++ IDE built around a plugin framework. It can be extended with plugins by installing or coding, its functions and features are provided by the extended plugins. It is a cross-platform software that runs on Linux, Mac, Windows and written in C++ with no interpreted languages or proprietary libs needed. It can fucntion as a compiler with multiple compiler support like GCC (MingW / GNU GCC), MSVC++, Digital Mars, Borland C++ 5, Open Watcom and many others. It can also import MSVC projects, workspaces and Dev-C++ projects. It displays local function symbols and arguments and has user-defined watches. It provides full breakpoints support for Code breakpoints, Data breakpoints which includes read, write and read/write, Breakpoint conditions which breaks only if an expression is true, and Breakpoint ignore counts which break only after certain number of hits are made. It has Syntax highlighting which are customizable and extensible, code folding for C++ and XML files, swap between .h and .c/.cpp files, and external customizable tools.

The Personal Computer running Windows should connected to Mac OS 10.8 for developing OS X applications.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .hpp files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .hpp. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
