lib for print not being linked?

Postby MuellerNick » Fri Aug 02, 2019 9:42 pm

HI, dummy alert!

I tired for hours to use printstr etc but I fail.

So I opened the example "console.xc" changed the target, compiled it and it works as supposed.
OK, back to my project:
Commented out all I wrote, copy and pasted the souce of console.xc into my main file, compiled and run and it fails. Compared each and every setting of both projects, but couldn't find a difference.
Started console.xe from the command prompt with "xrun --io console.xe" ... works
Started mycrap.xe from the command prompt with "xrun --io mycrap.xe" ... no output!

Now here is what struggles me:
Both xe should be of same size. But console.xe is about 90 k and mycrap.xe just 45 k.
Plus, in xTimeComposer's Project Explorer in Binaries -> mycrap.xe -> mycrap.xc, I see that it doesn't use stdio.h and print.h, but in the console project, they are used.

And I certainly have included both and used calls of print.h (as the source is a copy). I guess libs don't get linked.

Any ideas?

Hi. Please post your project or at least the working source and non-working source files. Please use the proper format tags if posting source files. Also what is the target CPU or kit?

I'm sorry for the incomplete information.
The day after my initial pos, I got up at 6 o'clock, had a big cup of coffee and a further look at each and every setting and decided to throw it all away and start from scratch. And this cured the problem. Seems I messed up something severely.
