Hi,

New to C (from delphi) installed lcc-win32. Build "hello world" works fine. Got a .c file that i know works for someone else that calls an api. I have all the .h files and everything is the same as my friend but it wont compile saying : undefined reference to (the api call)

Anyone know why please

Many thanks

Wrong forum, but no matter. There may not be the correct reference (in the form of #include) in the .c file to the .h file. Can you either check this, or post the line containing the reference here?

(Incidentally - where are the two files? In same diectory?)

Hi

Sorry about the wrong forum, which one should I goto?

The #include section looks like this:



                            /* System include files */
#include    <stdio.h>
#include    <stdlib.h>
#include    <string.h>
                            /* AR System include files */
#include    <ar.h>
#include    <arextern.h>
#include    <arstruct.h>
#include    <arfree.h>


Are they supposed to be case sensative?
The files are in the /include dir Ive tried putting them into the same directory... do you think it could be lcc-win32?

Many thanks

According to this all the ar.* files should be in the same directory as the system includes (not a good idea). One normally writes :-

#include "ar.h"

and then they are in the application's include directory, whose name is often given as a -I parameter on the compiler's command line.
