(.text+0x26f): undefined reference to `[email protected]

  c++, textout, windows

I’ve Been trying to fix this code for days now. When I try to compile main.cpp It gives me the error C:UsersUsernameAppDataLocalTempcckKRlpR.o:main.cpp:(.text+0x26f): undefined reference to [email protected]'. I’ve also tried including gdi32.lib and lgdi32 but It still gives me the error. If you know how to solve this problem please tell me. Here’s The source code btw:
