I'm using the free version of Borland C++ (Borland C++ Version 5.5 for WIN32) and I'm trying to make a makefile to run create my executable.  The command that I type at the promt right now to create my executable is...

bcc32 ncampus.cpp bldgs.cpp texmap.cpp ground.cpp glut32.lib opengl32.lib

This works, but the makefile is just plain confusing me! I can run it and it creates all my object files, but it won't create an executable (and it doesn't give me any errors either!).
What I have so far is:


OBJECTS = ncampus.obj bldgs.obj texmap.obj ground.obj

final.exe : $(OBJECTS)
  $(CC) $(CFLAGS) -obj $(OBJECTS) -Lopengl32.lib -Lglut32.lib

ncampus.obj: ncampus.cpp
  $(CC) $(CFLAGS)  ncampus.cpp

bldgs.obj: bldgs.cpp
  $(CC) $(CFLAGS)  bldgs.cpp

texmap.obj: texmap.cpp
$(CC) $(CFLAGS) texmap.cpp

ground.obj: ground.cpp
$(CC) $(CFLAGS) ground.cpp

Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong?

Thank you,
Laura Lucas
