Segmentation fault, dlopen ,aCC -AA -Ae

machime platform:
ia64 HP-UX B.11.23

when program 'A' use dlopen function to load library 'B', program 'A' may crash

scene description :
program 'A' use dlopen to load dynamic library "B', and "A" and "B" is correct in syntax and

logic,and 'A' is compiled by C language ,and 'B' is complied by C++ language

'A' compile parameter is:
aCC -o A.out -Ae -g +DD64 -mt -dynamic -ldl -lpthread

'B' compile parameter is:
aCC -o -AA -b -mt -Wl,+s -Wl,+vnocompatwarnings +DD64 +Olit=all -Wl,-hsqlca,+allowdups

-w -lunwind -lCsup -lstd_v2

'A" used (aCC -Ae),"B" used (aCC-AA)

print stack as below:

Program terminated with signal 11, Segmentation fault.

Re: Segmentation fault, dlopen ,aCC -AA -Ae

>aCC -Ae -g +DD64 -mt -dynamic -ldl -lpthread

You should NOT be using "aCC -Ae". Instead use cc. You don't need -lpthread since you have -mt. Also you shouldn't use -dynamic since it is the default.

>aCC -AA -b -mt -Wl,+s -Wl,+vnocompatwarnings +DD64 +Olit=all -Wl,-hsqlca,+allowdups

+Olit=all is the default, you don't need this.
-Wl,-hsqlca,+allowdups should be split into two ld options: -Wl,-hsqlca -Wl,+allowdups
Why do you have the latter? Any duplicates violate the ODR rule and are illegal.

>-lunwind -lCsup -lstd_v2

This is illegal and doesn't match what's documented for plugins.
The order is: -lstd_v2 -lCsup -lunwind -lm

This may be the cause. Also have you compiled everything with -mt?

You shouldn't use -w but suppress individual warnings with +Wnnnn.

I have a question.

Does it have any problem when a 'C'program call 'C++' shared library with dlopen,
can you give me some suggestions or show me more relalted information, thank you very much.

It shouldn't. The URL I provided above shows how to link an aC++ shlib for a plugin.
