$ g++ -o prog_complex prog_complex.cpp foo.o

...assuming foo.cpp having been subject to

$ g++ -c foo.cpp

If you've built a library then (eg: man, search for '-L' and '-l') "-L.
-lfoo" would be in order (for libfoo.* - eg:


$ g++ -o prog_complex prog_complex.cpp foo.cpp

...will work. Obviously the compiler is possibly being made to recompile
when it may not ought (hint: "man [g]make" and gcc -M? option).
