What is a Static Project and how can I run it

I'm using Dev C++. I needed to use a static library for the first time, not a console application. My file was made use a .cpp file. I'm unable to run the file. Obviously because its a static project.
This is what was compiled:

ar r CurlProject1.a main.o

ar: creating CurlProject1.a

ranlib CurlProject1.a

Could someone explain the logic of a static library and how I would run the code?

You have the library (.a file)
Now you just need to link it inside another project that needs it in order to use it.
