Hi kim_wei,
Yes, like

g++ -L./Lib ./Cpp/your_source.cpp -o your_binary -lFirst

Be careful that libararies start with "lib", not "Lib". Linux is case-sensitive with file names!

Cheers!

hello, stefan,

  thanx a lot, however, i just forgot to mention that in the cpp file is there a header file included "Child.h", which is saved in "./Inc", i did try several commands like following, they did not seem to work, any help?

1.)
g++ -I./Inc -L./Lib ./Cpp/Main.cpp -o test -Imy

2.) g++ -L./Lib ./Inc ./Cpp/Main.cpp -o test -Imy

Hi kim_wei,

Just like you tried -L flag for library, just try -I for include files.

g++ -I./Inc -L./Lib ./Cpp/your_source.cpp -o your_binary -lFirst

Have fun!!!
