Synopsis:C++ source files have the extension .cpp
Severity Level:8
Category:Code Organization


C++ source files have the extension .cpp. This makes it easier to understand the meaning of files in a software archive. Allowing other file extensions such as .tpl (templates) and .inl (inline files) doesn't add sufficient value.
