Hey everyone, I'm trying to get a library working, but it only came with a .lib and the a header, no source, so I can't compile it on my own. I'm working with dev C++, so the .lib wont work, which brings me to my question, does anyone know of any utilities that can convert a .lib to .a? Thanks in advance

Yes, before I switched to Code::Blocks and the VS2003 toolkit, I used lib files with Dev-C++'s implementation of MingW.
