ceil() and log10() - undefined?

    Hi everyone,

    I was messing around with math.h and I got this error:

    /tmp/ccefZYYN.o: In function `digcount':
    itos.c:(.text+0x103): undefined reference to `log10'
    itos.c:(.text+0x111): undefined reference to `ceil'
    collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

    shell returned 1

    It can't be that log10() and ceil() aren't defined, because math.h
    takes care of that. I admit that I have no idea what .text+0x111/.text
    +0x103 means

    The complete code is here:

    # include <stdio.h>
    # include <malloc.h>
    # include <math.h>

    int digcount(int num); // counts the digits of <num>

    // transform a number to a string
    int num, fact, dig, digits, i;
    char *s;

    scanf("%d", &num);
    digits = digcount(num);
    s = (char *) malloc((digits + 1) * sizeof(char)); // assign just
    enough space
    s += (digits - 1); // go to the last address of the memory space
    *s-- = '\0'; // mark the end of the string
    for (i = 0; i < digits; i++) {
    dig = num % 10;
    num /= 10;
    *s-- = '0' + dig; // store digit by digit
    printf("\"%s\"\n", ++s); // after the for, s is pointing to the
    addres before the start of the string

    int digcount(int num)
    /* N = trunc(log(x), 0) + 1, where N is the number of digits of x */
    double ans;

    ans = log10(num);
    ans = ceil(ans);
    return (int) ans;

    Any ideas are welcome.
