    Problem with linking .LIB

    Hi,
    I'm new here. I have some problems with compiling and linking C source.
    I want to build simple C example program, which uses some functions of Oracle-forms API. I'm using eclipse and MinGW. When I try to build program I get this error:

    Code:
    gcc -LE:\Oracle\Ora81_dev\FORMS60\API -otest.exe src\test.o -lifd2f60.LIB
    C:\MinGW\bin\..\lib\gcc\mingw32\3.4.2\..\..\..\..\mingw32\bin\ld.exe: cannot find -lifd2f60.LIB
    collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
    Build error occurred, build is stopped
    I've set that path to LIB file under project properties.
    Any idea what is wrong ?

    Thanks

    Maybe remove the ".LIB" from the end?
