    Unhappy using .lib with gcc?

    I am pretty new to using gcc. Is it possible to link .lib files with it? From all i have heard it seems i can link only .a files? if so then how do i convert my existing .lib files to .a for use with gcc?

    Its probbly possible, but somewhat ulgy, to link it with the rest of the object code, but it would probbly be better to find a header file for it. Be a bit more specific about what you are trying to do and someone will probbly be able to solve it for you.
    If you own a piece of land and there is an volcano on it and it ruins a
    nearby town, do you have to pay for the property damage?

    If a tree falls in the forest, and no one is around to see it, do the other trees make fun of it?
