picolog sdk library linking error

Post by sahil » Thu May 03, 2018 10:07 pm


I giving try to the picolog sdk c example as mentioned here
https://github.com/picotech/picosdk-c-e ... l1000con.c

when I compile via command prompt console i.e.
gcc -o logger.exe logger.c

and I am getting these errors;

Code: Select all

undefined reference to `_imp__pl1000SetTrigger@36'
undefined reference to `_imp__pl1000SetInterval@20'
undefined reference to `fopen_s'
undefined reference to `_imp__pl1000Run@12'
and so on...
Please see attached snapshot of the errors;
Seems like a library linking issue.

I have included the pl100.lib and all required drivers in my main folder.
I have tried various combination of gcc linking e.g.

Code: Select all

gcc -o logger.exe logger.c
gcc -o logger.exe logger.c -L. -lpl1000
gcc -L logger.c pl1000.lib -o logger.exe
but getting the same errors.

I am using notepade for the logger.c file and then using command prompt for compilation.
My operating system is windows 10 64bit.

Hi sahil,

Which version of the PicoSDK have you installed? Is it the 32-bit or 64-bit version?

If you do not have the correct PicoSDK installed for the target platform, it could be missing the corresponding lib file.

If you are building a 32-bit application, please ensure that the 32-bit PicoSDK has been installed, otherwise use the 64-bit PicoSDK.
