My problem is the following:
I have a C++ program in a WinXP machine. This program has to call some functions from a extern library which only works in a Silicon machine (OS UNIX). So somehow i have to say to my C++ program to look for the library functions in another computer...
I have an example where this connection is made (maybe it helps):
Its a program example which runs in the windows machine which uses functions of the extern library. This program, when compiled, generates an executable.
Before running the .exe, a .bat file must be run. This .bat file sets up a environement variable "CONTROL" like this:
In this "sites" file, the IP number of the computer where the library is (the UNIX computer) is referenced. So thats how the connection with the two machines is made.
Afterwards, u run the .exe and you can make use of the extern library.
However, in my case, i dont generate any executable. The functions of the extern library must be called "directly" by my program. But it never compiles because it keeps saying "LINK ERROR: extern symbol XXXX not solved" (XXXX is every function of the extern library)
Can u help me on this? I would really appreciate it since it is basic for my end-of-studies projet
I work with Visual C++. The two computers work in LAN.
I dont know if i was any clear... im not very familiar with informatics.
Thanks in advance
