    issues with libraries

    I am getting " undefined reference " errors at compile time with the following symbols :
    f_clos , s _ copy , do_lio , e_wsle etc...
    I came to know, f_clos comes under libf77 or libI77.. But, I dont have it on my machine..
    I know how these .a and .so lib files are created , can we get the .c files that are used to generate these lib files?

    what compiler are you using? GNU source is available on their web site.

    one thing that will trip you up is if you attempt to compile and link C source code (with *.c extension) with a c++ compiler and c++ libraries. It can be done but only if the c++ libraries were compiled with extern "C" scoping so that the compiler does not mangle the function names. I don't know if the libraries you are trying to link with have that problem or now.
