Hello everyone.

I am new to creating make files. I have been able to create simple makefiles for those applications which do not involve database but am unable to create for the ones that do involve database. When I run that make file, it just deletes the .exe file of that application from the folder. Could anyone please help me with this.

That's how my make file looks

INCLUDES = -I/usr/include/mysql++ -I/usr/include/mysql
LIBRARY = -L/usr/lib64/ -L/usr/lib64/mysql -lmysqlpp
SOURCE = /usr/local/babbage/bin/BreachCheck

    liffe_runbreach.o logger.o positionmonitor.o reportwriter.o

CFLAGS = -Wall -c $(DEBUG)


liffe_runbreach-64bit : $(OBJS)
    $(CC) $(LFLAGS) $(OBJS) -o liffe_runbreach-64bit

        frontrunner.h frontrunner.cpp positionmonitor.h positionmonitor.cpp liffe_runbreach.cpp

it gives me the following error message

collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [liffe_runbreach-64bit] Error 1
