    I am converting an InDesign CS2 plugin from CS2/CodeWarrior to CS3/XCode (IDE change required by the SDK). It's the fourth conversion project in a series as we prepare for the advent of CS3 products in the fall.

    The three other projects have converted just fine, but this fourth one is giving me an error at link time, to wit:

    Linking MyProgram
    can't locate file for -lPublicPlugin
    file: -lPublicPlugin is not an object file (not allowed in a library)

    I do not know if the -l is a dash-ell or a dash-eye.

    I have already tried the InDesign forum and have not received a single suggestion in three days. I thought I would check here first before pulling out the ceremonial knife:D.

    Anyone with a suggestion would be greatly honored the next time they stopped by exciting Brookfield MO during lunchtime.

    If you cut and pasted that error from your output into this post, then it's definately a dash-ell. How do "I" know that? I'll never te"ll".
