Hi everyone,

I just started using eclipse for c++ and MinGW and i'm trying to complete a project but I ran into an error and I can't seem to fix it.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

c:/mingw/bin/../lib/gcc/mingw32/4.5.0/../../../libmingw32.a( main.o):main.c:(.text+0xd2): undefined reference to `WinMain@16'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
Build error occurred, build is stopped

You are trying to build a Windows GUI application and have no WinMain() function defined. Either create this function or if you want to create a console app remove the compiler flag
