Trouble compiling C++ Builder code with bcc32

Hi.
I'm new to Borland and need some help with the commandline tools.
I'm working with code written in C++ Builder and attempting to compile it using the commandline tools so it can be added to an automated compile/test system. Code that is compiling in C++ Builder just fine will not compile with bcc32 though.
The following files were written in C++ Builder:
- main.cpp, which contains the main() method.
- INIFile.cpp/.h, A simple class for representing an INI file.
- INIParser.cpp/.h, A class that uses the VCL TIniFile class to parse an INI file.
The files were copied out of the C++ Builder project directory and a Makefile was written for them as follows:
- Makefile: ----
BDS=C:\Program Files\Borland\BDS\4.0
CC=bcc32
INCLUDES=-I"${BDS}\include";"${BDS}\include\vcl"
LIBPATH=-L"${BDS}\lib";"${BDS}\lib\release"
CFLAGS=-WC ${INCLUDES} ${LIBPATH}
LIBS=
OBJS = main.obj INIFile.obj INIParser.obj
main.exe : ${OBJS}
${CC} ${CFLAGS} ${OBJS} ${LIBS}
clean :
@DEL /Q *.exe
@DEL /Q *.tds
@DEL /Q *.obj
.cpp.obj :
@${CC} -c $&.cpp
----
Now, when I run 'make main.exe' I get a bunch of link errors that I cannot figure out:
- Errors: ----

I am new to both C++ development and to using Borland tools and libraries, so any help people may be able to offer would be much appreciated.
Thanks.

Hi,
Quote
CFLAGS=-WC ${INCLUDES} ${LIBPATH}
-WCV is the switch for Windows Consolge VCL compile.
BTW, the command...
bcc32.exe -h -W
...should show WCV and it is a bug that it does not.
In general, I recommend turning ON the IDE switch
in Environment Options for "Show Command Line" alhthough
it would not have helped you in this case because the
IDE uses separate compiler and linker lines.

Hi again,

-WCV is the switch for Windows Consolge VCL compile.
I should have phrased that "Windows Console VCL Target"
which makes it clearer that the switch is invoking the
linker with the correct obj's and lib's for a console
VCL target. For example, if you view the linker command
line in the IDE, you see sysinit.obj and vcl.lib, and
rtl.lib etc. The compiler target switches pass those
for you when the linker is invoked.

Thank you. Using the -WCV flag worked and the code now compiles just fine
