HI all-

In the past and even now, I run into the most confounded scenarios where MinGW can't find libraries. Let me give you an example-

Based on my memory something like from the command-line:

mingw-compiler-g++.exe -c -fpic file1.c -I/include/path
mingw-compiler-g++.exe -shared -o mylib.dll file1.o -L. -lm etc.

It never pays attention to what I tell it in the search path. I thought -L. says, "hey, look in the current directory!" The search-path kills me.

Trying to be patient, and I am not sure I understand. Is that a correct way to run the compiler and make a DLL file, or am I doing something wrong? I am just wondering if anyone else uses -L. in their shell or IDE, and does it not find things for them as well?
Thnx.- roboloki
