Ok a couple of months ago I remember reading a post about how to convert a VC++ lib into one that''ll work with Mingw and someone posted a link to a tool that could do it. I don''t suppose anyone has the link(Yes I''ve tried google)

there''s a tool you can use to generate .a files from .dlls (found on google).

as far as non-import libraries go:
- you probably won''t be able to reference c++ (mangled) functions, including class members, because of different name mangling schemes
- you can extract .obj files from .lib and try to link against them directly (need lib.exe from msvc, though)

Hi,
The utility is called REIMP. And you can get it from here:
