No I''m not asking how to use Allegro with DevC++ (the new version already says how ). My problem is that the readme file says to link your Allegro programs with a file called "liballeg.a". This file is nowhere to be seen-- nowhere. I can''t find it, so I can''t enter the directory for the linker to search for it. I''m using Allegro WIP v3937, just so you know.

Step 1: Compile liballeg.a
Step 2: THEN link liballeg.a to your programs.

All the required information should be in the documentation.

If you did "make"
then "make install"
all you need to do is add "-lalleg" to the compiler parameters to link to it.... easy (don''t forget to "#include "allegro.h"" as well

Didn''t help. I''ve already set everything up on the command line and in autoexec.bat, so that''s no worry.

dmounty: First off, where''d ya come up with that name? ... Weirdo. Secondly, in DevC++, by compiler parameters do you mean the compiler options space under "Project Options?" Typing -lalleg there doesn''t seem to work.

Beer Hunter: What do you mean compile liballeg.a? How? Where are the sources for it, and how would I compile them as a library of the format ''.a''?
