There can be various source code files of different types (*.frm, *.bas, *.cls,
and *.ctl files would be examples in VB, while *.htm, *.hhk, and *.h files would

in a header file (*.vbp file in VB, *.hhp file in HTML Help). The header file also

of the compiled file.

code files in the next sections.
