Not able to create executable from c source file

Hi All,

I am facing following problem when i am trying to create executable from c source file.
gcc -o pmapctl pmapctl.c
/usr/ccs/bin/ld: Unsatisfied symbols:
pmap_unset (first referenced in /var/tmp//cc6tBFf0.o) (code)
pmap_set (first referenced in /var/tmp//cc6tBFf0.o) (code)
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

Machine Configuration: HPUX 11.23 Parisc
The C source file is creating RPC connection through the TCP protocol

(I've asked the moderators to move this to HP-UX > Languages.)
Where do you expect these functions to be defined?

"-lnsl" or "-lrpcsoc" perhaps?

("man pmap_set", look for "-l".)

Thank a lot Steven,

I ran the following command and it works.
gcc -o pmapctl pmapctl.c -lnsl.

That's good news, but, of course, that's not
the same as, "The program works." The "man"
page describes the difference between the two
libraries. I can't tell which one would do
what you want.
