C++ (and modern C) require that functions be declared before being used. In 
small projects, you can sometimes get away with just defining your functions 
(which also declares them). Stuff like

void foo()

int main()

In larger projects, you'll want to use separate compilation (i.e., break up 
your code into multiple files). For instance, putting the above two into 
files foo.cpp and main.cpp. But if you do that, main.cpp no longer sees the 
declaration of foo. So you would need a foo.h containing a declaration of 
foo, and to have both foo.cpp and main.cpp #include "foo.h"
