Newbie question ...
Good Day All,
I have a couple of general questions regarding programming with C++ in MSVC6 on winXP.
How does one check to see what libs the compiler links to when compiling/building a program?
I am attempting to write some code that uses the gd library (GraphicsDraw from www.boutell.com/gd). I have downloaded the precompiled *.dll and placed it in my application directory. I am assuming that it works because I can compile/build example code. The example code creates a .png image. When I attempt to modify the code to produce a jpeg I get the following error msg :
simplegd.obj : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol _gdImageCreateFromJpeg
does this mean Im not linking to the jpeg lib? How can I verfiy/ make proper adjustments?
Any suggestions/pointers/tips etc would be greatly welcome!

Under project properties you can check the list of libraries that are linked with.
>does this mean Im not linking to the jpeg lib?
That would be my first guess.
