    Unresolved external '_main'

    Hi all,
    I'm trying to learn OpenGL but when I try to compile, the linker tells me:
    Unresolved external '_main' referenced from C:\cbuilder\lib\c0x32.obj.
    I'm using the Borland Command Line tools 5.5 and I've tried to compile other's people source code but still won't work.
    Any ideas anyone?

    Sounds like you are compiling a Windows program as a console program or vice versa possibly. Check your settings.
