`undefined reference to `inflateInit2_` - zlib in C++

I'm using Code Blocks IDE and I want to install Tiled Map Editor for SFML. So, I downloaded the source and imported it to my project. Unfortunately, the build finished with an error due to missing zlib library. I downloaded it and built again. This time I received an error that reads:

undefined reference to `inflateInit2_'|
undefined reference to `inflateEnd'|
undefined reference to `inflateEnd'|


On the Internet I found the advice to join the linker command
-lz
, but the compiler refuses throwing the error: cannot find -lz. Does anyone know how to fix it?

Regards.

Answer

Use the option -L<path> to tell the compiler where to find libz.so.x.y.z.
