Re: Question about using libcurl in Visual Studio 2003

   Thanks for your reply. My program is a littlte complex. Its work flow is
main.c->integration.c->function1.c. In function1.c, there is a function
"ImportData" which needs help of libcurl. I add "#include <curl/curl.h>" in
function1.c and "CURL *curl;" in function "ImportData". Before I add these
two code, my program works fine. I think I have completed the manual's
instruction for setting of Visual Studio 2003. Before I add these codes, I
ever meet library link error. And I have fixed this problem. So, I am very
confused what's wrong. Hope you can help me. Thanks a lot.
