    SDL and mingw. Please help.

    having problems comppiling SDL project in mingw.

    rite now, for tests, i only have 1 line of code:

    #include <SDL/SDL.h>

    Here is the error:

    \mingw\lib\libmingw32.a(main.o):main.c|| undefined reference to `WinMain@16'|

    Im fairly new to c++ but have quickly learned a lot of the core language concepts, I just have problems using libraries.

    Did you cover the part that says every program has to have a main?
