If you are getting a linker error then post the error and we can explain it to you.

In general a linker error is an error that occurs in the linking stage of building a program.

In general, the linking stage accomplishes the following:
  • stitches together multiple .c files into a single executable
  • extracts referenced object code from object libraries and copies it into the executable
  • attaches the run-time initialization code that calls your main function
