Hi - My problem(s) appears to be a favorite trouble spot for many beginners. This has to do with with linking to a .LIB file created with MSVC. I have been using the MingGW32 compiler with Codeblocks and this is my first time trying to do this. I do understand that the issue surrounds the way different compilers handle dll decorations. I see where the MSVC built import library (.lib) uses the stdcall calling convention and the dll/import lib was built using a DEF file as the functions have neither...

Doug, I have found implementations on the web. I haven't got round to testing them yet but should be able to debug them if necessary.
Hello again :). This is embarrassing, but I finally find the difference between libpthread.a and libwinpthread.a. They are 99.9%(you could say 100%) identically. The only difference is that libwinpthread.a is more compressed. I tried to compile the winpthread-code with make-command. And then I install it with "make install" command. But if I instead install it with "make install-strip" it will install an a-file without symbols table. With the exact same result as the already installed a-files. So...
