I want to use function 'sleep' in a program.
When I compile my test prog with < gcc sleepTest.c -o sleepTest
$ gcc sleepTest.c -o sleepTest -mno-cygwin
undefined reference to `_sleep'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
Do I need a -lxxxxxx.a in the compile statement for the linker?
- how do I know which lib to use an a given situation, is there a
reference out there somewhere??
- have I buggered up my lib paths, shouldn't this stuff be found
