Hey, I can show you both.

You need to make objects files from each .c or .cc file. Like so: (TAILOR 
this command line to your needs, it's generic)

gcc -Wall -c foo.c -o foo.o

Do that for each .c or .cc file you want to compile. To link them 
together into an .exe file:

gcc -Wall foo.o bar.o -o foobar.exe

To make a library:

ar cvs foo.o bar.o libfoo.a

(I'm NOT sure about that 'ar' command.)

You can look these things up in the infofiles:

info gcc invoking (for how to invoke gcc)
info binutils ar (for how to use ar)
