I am trying to link my application (abc.c) with non-standard extension based archive (xyz.aXYZ) by using
gcc abc.c xyz.aXYZ
Linking fails with error message like undefined function reference.
But if I rename the archieve to standard one i.e. xyz.a, linking got successful.
This library is provided by 3d party and their application is able to link it.
can someone help me whether to resolve the issue?
