    Object File error when compiling a libcurl program in Gcc?

    Does anyone know what this error means? I'm trying to compile this [http://curl.haxx.se/libcurl/c/simple.html] with the MinGW Gcc compiler and libcurl library []cURL: Download Wizard.

    C:\...AppData\Local\Temp\ccOCE2LV.o:undefined reference to '__imp_curl_easy_init'

    Any help would be much appreciated- Thanks

    Errors compiling against 3rd party libraries are usually best answered by looking at the appropriate library forums/mailing lists and searching their archives. In fact, a quick Google search for "undefined reference to '__imp_curl_easy_init'" turned up the following on the cURL website: Curl: Re: Compiling on MingW32 without a DLL. The cURL website even has a FAQ entry about it, so that's probably a good place to start.

    Ah, just realised I was searching for the solution to this on google.co.uk rather than .com...

    Thanks for the info anyway!
