I'm trying to compile C++ executable on UNIX using the makefile.  C++is rouguewave compatible so we are using roguewave libraries.

Here's the part of make file that poitnt to the libararies:

RWTAG       = m
RWROOT      = /opt/sourcepro/5_2003/6.2_patch5_32
RWINC       = -D_REENTRANT -mt -D_RWCONFIG=${RWTAG} -I${RWROOT}
RWLIB       = $(RWROOT)/lib
RWLIBS  =      -L$(RWLIB) -lm -ldl -libdbt53-m -libtls77-m
SUNPROLIB   = $(SUNPRO)/lib
SYSLIB      = -lsocket -lnsl
HOMEDIR     = $(HOME)/lib
HOMELIB     = -L$(HOMEDIR) -lcleandb -ldbaccess \
              -lrndcommon -lrndservice
ALL_LIBS    = $(SYSLIB) \
                    $(RWLIBS)

During the compilation I get the following error:

-lsocket -lnsl  -L/opt/sourcepro/5_2003/6.2_patch5_32/lib -lm -ldl -libdbt53-m -libtls77-m -L/home/aserebry/C++/lib -lcleandb -ldbaccess  -lrndcommon -lrndservice
ild: (argument error) can't find library arguments :: -libdbt53-m -libtls77-m

What does this error mean?  Can you please pinpont me why do I ge tthis error.  Do you I have to change something in the makefile or there is problem with the libraries.

Please let me know if you need more info.  
Thaks in advance for your answer.

>>ild: (argument error) can't find library arguments :: -libdbt53-m -libtls77-m

Are you sure these files exist? According to the naming conventions, I guess the names actually are are libdbt53-m.<ext> and libtls77-m.<ext>, so

RWLIBS  =      -L$(RWLIB) -lm -ldl -libdbt53-m -libtls77-m

should actually read

RWLIBS  =      -L$(RWLIB) -lm -ldl -ldbt53-m -ltls77-m

You're welcome :o)

As a rule of thumb: The linker aguments have to be of the form -l<archive> with the library being named lib<archive>.a - see tne manpage:

       `-larchive'

       `--library=archive'
           Add archive file archive to the list of files to link.
           This  option  may  be  used any number of times.  `ld'
           will  search  its   path-list   for   occurrences   of
           `libarchive.a' for every archive specified.
