An007kit, you appear to be a "help leech." The primary purpose of this forum is to help people with problems in their code, or with things which they cannot discover through their own resources and intelligence. I would suggest to you your learning materials, tool documentation, and Google. Such resourcefulness will be expected of you in your professional life, should you have one.

The meaning of "translation unit", as regards C/C++ is well-defined. Those meanings are widely available with the most limited research.

Consider this fact: if many, many people have explained that, in a forum that is widely available (the Internet), then asking other people (e.g. the members of a forum also available on the Internet) to REPEAT those explanations is a matter of laziness or gross inability.

The definition of a leech is exceedingly appropriate. The parasite seeks a host who has expended energy in order to convert raw materials for nutritional purposes. The leech only expends enough energy to rob the host of this nutrition, which has been expensively processed by the host.

In this case, and others, the OP is asking for answers that are widely available. A few minutes of investment are all that's required, but the OP would rather invest only 30 seconds or so and be spoon fed answers.

I, for one, will not participate in such shenanigans. If the OP succeeds in this methodology, then some company might hire the OP, and the OP's co-workers will wind up doing all the work while the OP draws a check without investing any effort other than that expended by others.
