    duplicate symbol _OBJC_METACLASS_$
    I created a basic command line Foundation Class Based object using the build in template.

    I proceed to add a new "MyClass.m" & "MyClass.h" and everything compiles fine.

    Now when I try to #import "MyClass.m" in the main file it says:
    ld: duplicate symbol _OBJC_METACLASS_$_MyClass in MyClass.o and Link.o...

    Please Help.

    Import the .h file.

    I think what has happened is that your project already knows to compile the .m file. By including it in another source file, you are asking the compiler to compile it inline with that other source file, so the compiler sees it a second time, hence the duplicate symbol.

    When asking questions, post the version of your software. You'll receive better answers.

    Please post your results to the thread as it is good feedback.
