    k, well, i downloaded "hge" a 2d graphics engine in c++. it comes with a small tut witch consists of the source code. for tut 1 the code is.

    Code:
    /*
    ** Haaf's Game Engine 1.8
    ** Copyright (C) 2003-2007, Relish Games
    ** hge.relishgames.com
    **
    ** hge_tut01 - Minimal HGE application
    */
    
    
    #include "..\..\include\hge.h"
    
    HGE *hge = 0;
    
    // This function will be called by HGE once per frame.
    // Put your game loop code here. In this example we
    // just check whether ESC key has been pressed.
    bool FrameFunc()
    {
    	// By returning "true" we tell HGE
    	// to stop running the application.
    	if (hge->Input_GetKeyState(HGEK_ESCAPE)) return true;
    
    	// Continue execution
    	return false;
    }
    
    int WINAPI WinMain(HINSTANCE, HINSTANCE, LPSTR, int)
    {
    	// Here we use global pointer to HGE interface.
    	// Instead you may use hgeCreate() every
    	// time you need access to HGE. Just be sure to
    	// have a corresponding hge->Release()
    	// for each call to hgeCreate()
    	hge = hgeCreate(HGE_VERSION);
    
    	// Set our frame function
    	hge->System_SetState(HGE_FRAMEFUNC, FrameFunc);
    
    	// Set the window title
    	hge->System_SetState(HGE_TITLE, "HGE Tutorial 01 - Minimal HGE application");
    	
    	// Run in windowed mode
    	// Default window size is 800x600
    	hge->System_SetState(HGE_WINDOWED, true);
    
    	// Don't use BASS for sound
    	hge->System_SetState(HGE_USESOUND, false);
    
    	// Tries to initiate HGE with the states set.
    	// If something goes wrong, "false" is returned
    	// and more specific description of what have
    	// happened can be read with System_GetErrorMessage().
    	if(hge->System_Initiate())
    	{
    		// Starts running FrameFunc().
    		// Note that the execution "stops" here
    		// until "true" is returned from FrameFunc().
    		hge->System_Start();
    	}
    	else
    	{	
    		// If HGE initialization failed show error message
    		MessageBox(NULL, hge->System_GetErrorMessage(), "Error", MB_OK | MB_ICONERROR | MB_APPLMODAL);
    	}
    
    	// Now ESC has been pressed or the user
    	// has closed the window by other means.
    
    	// Restore video mode and free
    	// all allocated resources
    	hge->System_Shutdown();
    
    	// Release the HGE interface.
    	// If there are no more references,
    	// the HGE object will be deleted.
    	hge->Release();
    
    	return 0;
    }
    
    when i compile it i get the error " [Linker error] undefined reference to `hgeCreate@4' "
    i have looked of what this means and all i have found on forums are people telling other people that it is a linker error. and well. duh. but no one will tell me how to fix it.

    What commands do you use to compile and link the program?
