/usr/ccs/bin/ld: Unsatisfied symbols:

Hi
when i try to issue cc in command prompt.
i get the following error.

#cc
/usr/ccs/bin/ld: Unsatisfied symbols:
main (Not referenced yet! Probably due to -u option)


Could anyone knows how to resolve this problem.

thanks.

Re: /usr/ccs/bin/ld: Unsatisfied symbols:

Hmm... you know that cc is the C compliler. So you should specify something to compile...

Re: /usr/ccs/bin/ld: Unsatisfied symbols:

hai,

I have tested on 11.23 as
# cc
It is normal. no error message.

What is cc -v saying. Use the verbose type in ld. cc is working fine. ld is stating the problem.

Re: /usr/ccs/bin/ld: Unsatisfied symbols:

Hi,

Issue which cc and let us know the cc path.
There could be some library version mismatch.
Normally /usr/ccs/bin/cc is link file.
You should have the LD_LIBRARY_PATH set with the following,
/usr/lib:/opt/langtools/lib

Thanks

Re: /usr/ccs/bin/ld: Unsatisfied symbols:

Ah, now I understand the question. :) Just checked on some of our systems... lokks like newer versions of the ANSI C bundle always call ld, which then prints the error message.

Re: /usr/ccs/bin/ld: Unsatisfied symbols:

hai,

It is the problem because of ld.

Execute /usr/ccs/bin/ld -umain -lc
It will state the problem in all machines as like your's when it is executed separately.But In your system, ansi cc is linked with ld with -u main to execute the particular ld command.

Hi Dietmar

Re: /usr/ccs/bin/ld: Unsatisfied symbols:

By default,

cc is executed as /usr/ccs/bin/ld /opt/langtools/lib/crt0.o -u main -lc command without any file.

So it will state the error messages. change to another ansi bundle if you don't want to have this error messages. You can verify from konerman's output of different cc.

Re: /usr/ccs/bin/ld: Unsatisfied symbols:

Jay,

I'm wondering what your actual problem is... so please help me to understand why it is important how cc - being called using an IMHO illegal synopsis - behaves?

NAME
cc, c89 - C compiler

SYNOPSIS
cc [options] files
c89 [options] files

Maybe I can help you better if I really understand the problem.

Best regards...
Dietmar.

Re: /usr/ccs/bin/ld: Unsatisfied symbols:

Hi

The actual problem is the error messages we encountered upon issuing the command cc in command prompt. or everytime we compfile we encountered this error messages.

( /usr/css/bin/ld: Unsatisfied symbols.
main (Not referenced yet! Probably due to -u option)

Using the newer version of HP C/ANSI C Developer's Bundle for HP-UX 11.i (S800). (B.11.11.08)

Anyway just to solve problem i just install the lower verion of C/ANSI C Developer's Bundle for HP-UX 11.1 (s800)(B.11.11.06).

Guys thanks for helping us.

cheers....
