ProgrammingThis forum is for all programming questions.
The question does not have to be directly related to Linux and any language is fair game.

Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I try to write a simple program for creating threads in C++. If I don't have arguments in the Thread Function, it works fine. The problem arises when I try to pass an argument to this function. I have found various code examples, but they all cause compile errors. More specifically, the part of my code concerning the thread creation is the following:
In function void* needs_2_args(void*)
invalid conversion from 'void*' to 'two_args*'
Similar compile response appears, even if I use a simple argument (e.g. int) and not a struct. As I said before, I have used many code examples from the internet, but they are all similar and I get the same output.
The compiling part of my Makefile is the following:
g++ -c -o $(LIB_DIR)/Test.o -l $(INC_LIB) $(SRC_DIR)/Test.cpp
Do I forget an option? I am using also -lpthread but in the linking part. Should I use it also in the compiling part? If yes, in which place?
Please note that I don't have any experience in Linux Programming.
