boost iostreams compilation error

this is my compile line:

g++ -std=c++11 -Wall -Wextra -g -lboost_iostreams cppfile.cpp -o bin


but I have the following error:

I use -lboost_iostreams so I don't understrand why I have this error

Answer

You can fix this by putting the linker flag -lboost_iostreams after cppfile.cpp. The order is significant.
