Subject Re: Specifying a different target directory for APXS

Joe,

Thanks for ur reply.

Let me clarify something....When I said I didnt get any helpful responses, I
meant I didn't get any answers as to what is wrong with gcc and why the
module was behaving the way it was.

Anyways....point taken.....will use apxs for compiling the module.
