The content of this blog is my personal opinion only. Although I am an employee - currently of Nvidia, in the past of other companies such as Iagination Technologies, MIPS, Intellectual Ventures, Intel, AMD, Motorola, and Gould - I reveal this only so that the reader may account for any possible bias I may have towards my employer's products. The statements I make here in no way represent my employer's position, nor am I authorized to speak on behalf of my employer. In fact, this posting may not even represent my personal opinion, since occasionally I play devil's advocate.

Monolithics and Makefiles

I think that one of the reasons why some people write big monolithic programs with too many classes and functions and just plain stuff in the same headers and .c/.cpp files is that they do not have goopd dynamic Make tools. They get the Makefile working, and then don't touch it, since touching it would require editing by hand.
