I am trying to link my simple program to cpp-netlib. I downloaded and extracted the distribution, then ran the make file. It seems to find the header files fine, but it cannot find the libraries. Here is my command that I am running to compile. Code: g++ Test.cpp -o Test -I/usr/local/cpp-netlib-0.10.1/ -l/usr/local/cpp-netlib-0.10.1/build/libs/network/src/libcppnetlib-client-connections.a -l/usr/local/cpp-netlib-0.10.1/build/libs/network/src/libcppnetlib-server-parsers.a -l/usr/local/cpp-netlib-0.10.1/build/libs/network/src/libcppnetlib-uri.a However, it is saying the libraries are not found. Code: ld: library not found for -l/usr/local/cpp-netlib-0.10.1/build/libs/network/src/libcppnetlib-client-connections.a collect2: ld returned 1 exit status Cross posted over at DreamInCode. Any help is much appreciated.
