Re: C++ program with C shared object?
I finally got the program to compile by using gcc to call the linker, and
specifying -lstdc++ as well. Now I have one more problem. My goal is to
have the library call a callback function from the executable. This
callback function will throw an exception, which will be caught by the
function in the application that initially called the shared library. The
goal is to create an Exception based error handling system, even though the
shared object is written in C, not C++.
The same code base works as a Windows C DLL and C++ Program, so I'm sure
I'm just missing a compiler flag or something.
Both the library and program are compiled with the command line options
But at the point where the exception should have been thrown, I only see
the text, 'Aborted' on stdout, although that phrase is not in my source
code at all.
Is the library having trouble calling the callback function, or is
the exception having trouble making its way through the C library back to
Again, thanks to the response to the initial question, and thank you for
any help you can lend me.
