    Compiler linking tutorial

    Hello.

    Does anyone know a good tutorial about the compile process - if to be more exact, I need a knowledge of .o files and the -l linking option.
    I know that .o files are in machine language, but I don't know how to use the -l option or how to make files that I can but after the -l option.

    Please tell me, or give me a link.

    it depends on your compiler -- every compiler is different, there is no standardized way to do it.

    I am using the compiler that comes with DevC++ 4.9.9.1 (or was it 4.9.9.2)
    But please give me a general idea about -l option. Make an examplefile too please.

    7. It is easier to write an incorrect program than understand a correct one.
    40. There are two ways to write error-free programs; only the third one works.*

    Thanks for those links. the 1st two links were the ones I have seen before and they are not a big use to me, because they don't bring me an example. and the 2 bottom ones are just plain theory - no compiler-specific examples.
