Hello,

I'm using Eclipse CDT on Ubuntu with the standard Linux GCC Toolchain and I need to link in the math library. Using the -l linker flag does eliminate the "unresolved reference" errors for the math library function calls in my code but whenever I do use the -l linker flag I get the following:

Building target: Ex15a
Invoking: GCC C Linker
gcc -l -o "Ex15a" ./Ex15a1_main.o
gcc: error: Ex15a: No such file or directory
make: *** [Ex15a] Error 1

Thanks,
Ray

The linker flag "-l" needs the name of the lib! In your case it is "m"

Please follow the instructions here

Thanks for your help. I tried the first two solutions but neither worked. Thankfully the third solution did work.
