    [Linker Error] Undefined reference to 'cputs'

    Hello, I am unable to determine why I receive this error.

    Code:
    /* Prints string s */
    	void cio_puts(const char *s){
    	cputs(s);
    	}
    With the included libraries,
    Code:
    #include <windows.h>
    #include <conio.h>
    Not sure what the cause of this is.

    Appreciate any help whatsoever.

    Compiler is MinGW with Dev-CPP+

    What is the error? cputs() undefined?

    [edit]
    cputs is defined in conio.h:

    I thought so. Why do you need cputs()? Is puts() okay?

    I don't know what cputs() does, but from my link it looks very similar to puts(). puts() is part of the ANSI standard, so it will almost certainitly work.

    [edit]
    If it's question number one, don't link to the last question! Here's the right link: http://www.bloodshed.net/dev/faq.html#conio

    conio.h is non-standard, and you shouldn't use anything in it.
