That's what many implemenations do, although the language definition
doesn't require it. But note that there are two variations that are both
described that way. In the first, the 'includer' is the source file being
compiled. In the second, the 'includer' is the file that contained the
#include directive, which could be an include file located in a different
directory from the source file being compiled.

     #include "sample.h"

     // ...

    #include "header.h"

     // ...

Under the first model, test.cpp will get the contents of src\header.h.
Under the second it will get the contents of include\header.h.
