I want to generate .o first, then executable or shared library (.so).

I can produce a shared library (.so) by using makefile. However, when I tried to generate .o first, then .so, I encountered many multi-definition errors, a long list! Don't know why.

Can some makefile experts explain possible "why" or provide me a relative complicated with multi-directory inter-dependencies makefile example? C or C++

One file, not the VC or Eclipse generated 25 files or more. BTW, I am on Linux.

Huge Thanks!!!
