Hi im trying to make an exe file from my source file (test.cpp) in the command prompt.

I am able to create the .obj file successfully by using the typing the follwing command

tcc test.cpp(source file name)

it successfully creates the test.obj file. Now i want to use the linker (tlink.exe) to convert the test.obj to test.exe

when i type:-

tlink test.obj

it does create the test.exe file and a file but with the following error messages

Error: undefined symbol _getch in module test.cpp

Error: undefined symbol _printf in module test.cpp

Error: undefined symbol _clrscr in module test.cpp

but when the exe file run it dosent work properly and is very small in size.

i am able to create the exe file by using the tcc.exe. I want to know the how to create the exe straight from the .obj file by using the tlink

I think you need to link in the runtime libraries provided to tlink. Unfortuanetly I couldn't tell you how as the the last time I I used turbo c was back in '91.
