porting linux code to windows (".a" libraries)
Posted on 2004-08-22
i have a c++ prog .. i'm using it on linux, but it doesn't use any linux specific features .. use g++ to compile ..it uses a library (".a" + ".so.1" files)
i now need to make the code work on windows .. so i downloaded the Mingw compiler .. it compiles fine, but gives some linker errors ("function not found" .. these functions are present in the library files - ".a" + ".so.1") .. i've copied these 2 files to the lib folder of mingw .. but it doesn't seem to help ...
can anyone tell me wht i'm doing wrong ?? i thought mingw was able to link against ".a" files .. is there any other compiler that i could use ??
