Cannot find libs ... but they are there...
« on: July 23, 2016, 11:27:52 am »
Hello,

I am trying to get rid of the MSCV++ 2015 compiler for a project due to its returning bug (find it here: https://connect.microsoft.com/VisualStudio/feedback/details/1853228/lnk1179-invalid-or-corrupt-obj-file-created-by-vs-2015-rtm-compiler-in-debug-builds).
Despite MSVC++ 2015 is pretty advanced in templates (it needs less "template" and "typename" keywords than gcc for the moment as it deduces well the purpose of a A::B::C or A::B::C::F() construct), I need to go with something closer to the standard.

I have an Adobe Illustrator plugin made with Adobe's template, which is MSVC++ based. I have installed Code::Blocks 16.01 and TDM-GCC-64 compiler under, configured the compiler, imported the MSCV++ project into C::B, configured the paths to the headers and libs in the project.

The project compiles pretty well under 64bit, much faster than MSVC++ (after some "template" and "typename" keywords  here and there), but it fails linking:

Code

Process terminated with status 1 (0 minute(s), 15 second(s))
27 error(s), 0 warning(s) (0 minute(s), 15 second(s))

I see some libs duplicated, probably they are added by the compiler itself. Note, my libs from Windows SDK are on a path with spaces because Windows SDK traditionally installs in C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows SDK\10....

What can I do to fix this, as it is my first project on a gcc compiler from scratch?

Thank you.

you can try to remove the .lib extension from the libraries in your project settings

I have removed the redundant entries (for each profile and the root profile I've put the libs, thus the duplication.
I have removed the .lib extension and the error stays the same, nothing changed.

Code
C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\Lib\10.0.10586.0\um\x64/kernel32.lib: error adding symbols: File in wrong format
this looks like that you try to use a library not compiled with your compiler version (probably compiled with mvc and not gcc, so it is not possible to use this library...)

Have you checked the paths to the libraries? Also check that you don't have a second mingw installation in your PATH environment variables...

I don't find any other MinGW unless C::B uses some internally if there are several compilers installed in C::B.
I did not find any gcc version of the kernel32 library, for example.

in my installation they are under

MINGW\lib

and is called libkernel32.a

but the linker will find it if the library name in your project is "kernel32"

can you try to rebuild the source (Build->Rebuild) and post the full build log in code tags?

It might seem offtopic but...

Right now, I need to build SpiderMonkey on mingw under Windows.
So, I have installed mozilla-build. It uses msvc++. I have altered some configuration file to take gcc and g++ instead of cl.
When I run configure, it displays

Code
checking for as... /m/Development/Tools/c++/CodeBlocks/windows/codeblocks/TDM-GCC-64/bin/as

This is the compiler I use under C::B, C::B is closed now, I have nothing related to this on PATH or other variable.

This is weird.

probably not, more likely a configuration error with the paths, or naming of the libraries... post a FULL REBUILD LOG...

I'll do it as soon as I could, but first I need to link against a SpiderMonkey 45 build that I don't have. Nobody seems to be able to build it with mingw. Is there no project using it and building it with mingw?

As I couldn't find any way to build SpiderMonkey with mingw, I have converted the dll to lib:

Code
cd M:/dev/jScriptor/Mozilla/SpiderMonkey/mozjs-45.0.2/js/src/build_OPT.OBJ/dist/sdk/lib

M:/Development/codeblocks/TDM-GCC-64/x86_64-w64-mingw32/bin/gendef ../../bin/mozjs-45.dll
M:/Development/codeblocks/TDM-GCC-64/x86_64-w64-mingw32/bin/dlltool --as-flags=--64 -m i386:x86-64 -k --output-lib mozjs-45.a --input-def mozjs-45.def

The tool says ' -m i386:x86-64' is default.

Now, a full build is attached, as requested.

I did not add system libs so far, I won't, unless it asks for some of their functions.

I don't know...
I have changed the names of the libs and it says it can not find them.
It finds them, but might be something related to naming?

I have found and added all the system libs, but thay are not used, IMHO.
It is an Illustrator plugin without GUI and special OS stuff.
They are just added by the project template "for future use".
The imported lib from the dll seems to be the issue, as all the errors are from it.
Until it doesn't pass that, I won't know it will throw some other errors.

Just to illustrate, the generated def file has naming like this:

Code

while the linker says:

Code
undefined reference to `__imp__Z13JS_GetPrivateP8JSObject'

What should I deduce from this?

I think there is a conflict between what gendef exports and what the linker expects as naming.
Any ideas?

So mangling for msvc++ and gnu c++ differs. Is there any solution, or should I try to build anything with MinGW?

Well, I've managed to build SpiderMokey with MinGW-w64.
Now, I get linkage errors 'multiple definition of...' for everything.
That code compiles under msvc.
I presume there is an issue with the project...?
I do not include cpp in cpp or h.
Any ideas?
Thanks.

Yes, of course, but what? I have a project with tens if not hundreds of files.
How could I know? What should I post?

Why NOT try posting a build log. So, we can at least see the errors!

OK. I have Code::Blocks 16.01 + MinGW-w64 x86_64-6.1.0-win32-seh-rt_v5-rev0.

The build log is attached...

Please read the build log!!

Please look at lines 55 and 66 of  "sdk/Adobe Illustrator CC_2015.3 SDK/illustratorapi/illustrator/IAIAutoBuffer.cpp"

Then fix the problem.

Edit: You may need to search for all places AllocateBlock and DeleteBlock are defined.

I think you need to move your questions to an site that supports your compiler and supports porting this library to your compiler.

This problem likely violates the CB Rules http://forums.codeblocks.org/index.php/topic,9996.0.html

I would suggest downloading the Mac source code and the Windows source code if you still wish to port this library to Windows GCC; but, I think it will be very hard to do the port!! The Mac source code might be easier to port to Windows GCC.

It might be easier to do a C DLL wrapper using Visual Studio 2015; but, that is also off topic for this site!

First, I do not port, I have to use it.
Secondly, it seems I misinterpreted the error.
I took the following as it was somehow compiled twice and I've wondered if C::B generated a malformed build command.

Code
M:/Creative/Adobe/dev/jScriptor/Adobe/sdk/Adobe Illustrator CC_2015.3 SDK/illustratorapi/illustrator/IAIAutoBuffer.cpp:55: multiple definition of `ai::SPAlloc::AllocateBlock(unsigned long long)'

If this is not the case, thing is solved.

+ It's Adobe API poorly documented. That statement is not clear. I've no idea what "core application" means as I build a plugin.

One question though.
When I add files to the project, are they automatically set to compile and link?
Especially headers, how are to be set concernng compiling and linking?

If you DO NOT wish to port it to a different compiler; then use a supported Compiler!!!!!!

Especially headers, how are to be set concernng compiling and linking?

Source files default to compiling and linking.
Header files default to NOT compiling and NOT linking.

Please give up on using the GCC compiler!!

If you do NOT want to; then, I suggest you need to ask someone you know and trust to explain why what you are doing is a waste of time.

FYI: Code::Blocks is a IDE that works with more than one compiler.

IF someone told you to use Code::Blocks it does NOT mean you have to use the GCC Compiler!

HINT: You are trying to build a plugin, the plugin ABI must match what the application is expecting!!
That means using the compiler the application tells you to use in nearly all cases where the API is C++.

I just re-read the thread; if the original bug is in the MS Visual Studio IDE then using the Code::Blocks IDE with the MS Visual Studio Compiler is something to do. But, if the original bug is in MS Visual Studio Compiler then the bug will still exist using the CB IDE.

OK, you see, I try GCC to see if it compiles. It does. Just linking is the problem now.
All the stuff is compiled by GCC now.
The MSVC++ compiler bug is not yet solved - it is related to some template evaluation I think.
So I can't use it for the moment.
If GCC works, I would use it anyway. It is some kind of experiment.

Now, I have the following linking issue, due to extern "C" variables in a file as defined in the project (worked in msvc++ this way):

Code
.objs\Adobe\sdk\Adobe Illustrator CC_2015.3 SDK\illustratorapi\illustrator\ASMemory.o:ASMemory.cpp:(.rdata$.refptr.sSPBasic[.refptr.sSPBasic]+0x0): undefined reference to `sSPBasic'

The header:

Code
#ifndef __jScriptorSuites_H__
#define __jScriptorSuites_H__

...

// Basic suites acquired by all plug-ins:
extern "C" SPBasicSuite*                    sSPBasic;

...
#endif

It is a header, I think it is the issue, should I set something in the project for it and where?

I think I have found the issue. It seems that having files on several paths (not all in the same root) made the MSVC++ project import to C::B a bit messed up.
It did not include all the needed cpp files, although no message was given in the process.
