i do not understand how placing the inner workings of each classes or function in the header w/o separating the two would make things easier


You know those pesky defines that you have in a header file? Imagine you have a library built with
C++
#define OPTION_A 1
#define OPTION_B 0

but your coworker needs the same library built with different options:
C++
#define OPTION_A 0
#define OPtION_B 1

Now you have two different libraries lib_opt10.lib and lib_opt01.lib.

Another project cannot be switched from Visual Studio 2019 to Visual Studio 2022. So now you have lib_opt01_19.lib, lib_opt10_19.lib, lib_opt01_22.lib and lib_opt10_22.lib. And so on and so forth (debug, release, x86, x64, arm, etc.). Congratulations for graduating from "DLL hell" and welcome to the new and improved "dependency hell".

Now if you have everything in the header file, all of a sudden there are no more libraries to manage and the only "small" side-effect is that you drink humongous amounts of coffee while waiting for your project to build. Smile | :)
