// Do not understand compilation errors.

# Makefile:
#        It uses the C++ Compiler with all warnings and
#        full debugging; will create a single executable called 'maze'
# ---------------------------------------------------------------
# the compiler
CPP = cxx
# compiler flags
CFLAGS = -L/usr/lib/cmplrs/cxx -DPOSIX_4D9 -w0 -gall
# linker flags to link in the libraries libm.a and libtask.a
LFLAGS = -lm -ltask
#
RM = rm -f
# ----------------------------------------------------------------
# Explanation of macros:
#     $< is any dependent file which is out of file1
#     $* is the target's basename (without extension)
#     $@ is the target's fullname
#
# add suffix .cpp since it is not a default with make util
.SUFFIXES:      .cpp .o
#
# implicit rule for compilation only:
.cpp.o:
      ${CPP} -c ${CFLAGS} $<

OFILES=            maze.o util.o main.o

HFILES=            util.h

# dependencies
#
default:      maze      
#
maze:           $(OFILES)
            ${CPP} ${CFLAGS} ${LFLAGS} $(OFILES) -o $@

maze.o:            maze.cpp util.h

util.o:      util.cpp util.h main.cpp

#
clean:
      ${RM} *.o
      ${RM} core
#
veryclean:      clean
      ${RM}  maze  


make =

Del, check maze.cpp and main.cpp if the function main() is defined more than once. Any global function name may occur only once in the whole project.

Hi edelossantos,
Are you sure you have only one function "main" in all your .c files?

You should also re-order you linking command:
maze:           $(OFILES)
          ${CPP} ${CFLAGS} -o $@ $(OFILES) ${LFLAGS}

...so that the libraries are at the end.



Cheers!

Stefan

If main() is defined only once make a 'clear' on your project and build again and/or delete all .o files manually.

grep -n "main(" your_code_directory/*
to locate all instances of (and calls to) main function. although calls to main will cause compile errors it is perfectly valid text.
I intentionally used only opening paren 'coz main may have some arguments.
