Re: Perl - trying to install libwin32


Here's what's getting produced by make:

gcc -shared -o File.dll -Wl,--out-implib=libFile.dll.a -Wl,--export-all-symbols -Wl,--enable-auto-import -Wl,--stack,8388608 -L/usr/local/lib -L/usr/local/lib -L/usr/lib/w32api -I/usr/include/w32api -s File.o /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.0/cygwin-multi-64int/CORE/libperl.dll.a -lkernel32

I've also tried (by hand):

gcc -shared -o File.dll -Wl,--out-implib=libFile.dll.a -Wl,--export-all-symbols -Wl,--enable-auto-import -Wl,--stack,8388608 -s File.o /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.0/cygwin-multi-64int/CORE/libperl.dll.a -L/usr/local/lib -L/usr/local/lib -L/usr/lib/w32api -lkernel32 -I/usr/include/w32api

Any thoughts?

Linkers like forward references, and don't understand back references.
The libraries should go to the very end of the line, after the object
files (and I believe the *FLAGS vars usually get put right after the
executable).  You might need to use some other variable for this.

If the libraries are at the end of the gcc invocation, please post the
exact gcc command you get when compiling.

Okay... (just now getting back to this).

Thanks for the pointer... but it must be something else.

Since the build is failing in APIFile I've added this to APIFile/Makefile

LDDLFLAGS = -L/usr/lib/w32api -lkernel32 -I/usr/include/w32api

When I run 'make' I do see that the gcc line in question now has these
options... but the link fails in the same way as before. (lots of
unresolved reverences, eg. "...File.c: undefined reference to

Any thoughts on what my next step should be?

Thanks much,

I'm also seeing the same problem as Paul when trying to compile
libwin32-0.191 (patched) on cygwin.  This is with both gcc 3.3.1 and gcc
3.2 20020927 (prerelease) .

Any suggestions? Here's what "make" is giving me (with gcc 3.2):

Try adding libkernel32.a (-L/usr/lib/w32api -lkernel32) to the linkline?
