Itanium linker

This sounds so silly but I don't understand why the following link command fails on Itanium.

Re: Itanium linker

Re: Ian

Me thinks that the module VM$$_MALLOC, defines the functions VM$$_CFREE and VM$$_FREE, but not the function VM$$_MALLOC itself (just guessing from the info provided by Malleka).

Re: Itanium linker


The problem was that the routines in VSS_MALLOC had each coditional compilation for VAX and Alpha. It was being updated by another person to include the ia64. I thought that this had already been done and tried to link but the object modules were apparently empty.
