CreateGlobalStringPtr giving linker errors

Hi,

I am trying to use some LLVM API in my C++ code, and I end up getting linker errors. I am working on Apple MacOSX Lion. Using g++ for the compile. It is the CreateGlobalStringPtr which is throwing the error. This is LLVM 3.0.

Here’s the codeI am trying to use some LLVM API in my C++ code, and I end up getting linker errors. I am working on Apple MacOSX Lion. Using g++ for the compile. It is the CreateGlobalStringPtr which is throwing the error. This is LLVM 3.0.

Here’s the code:


#define __STDC_LIMIT_MACROS
#define __STDC_CONSTANT_MACROS

#include "llvm/Support/DataTypes.h"
#include "llvm/Support/IRBuilder.h"
#include "llvm/LLVMContext.h"
#include "llvm/Module.h"
#include "llvm/Constants.h"
#include "llvm/Function.h"
#include "llvm/BasicBlock.h"
int main()
{
  llvm::LLVMContext & context = llvm::getGlobalContext();
  llvm::Module *module = new llvm::Module("top", context);
  llvm::IRBuilder<> builder(context);
  llvm::Value *helloWorld = builder.CreateGlobalStringPtr("hello world!\n");
}

And here's the error:

Probably your g++ compiles x86_64 binary by default, but i686 dylib is supplied?

Try:

g++ -m32 e.cpp /Developer/Platforms/iPhoneOS.platform/Developer/usr/llvm-gcc-4.2/libexec/gcc/i686-apple-darwin10/4.2.1/libllvmgcc.dylib

- D.

Hi All,

I was able to resolve the compile errors using llvm-config --cxxflags --ldflags --libs and then applying the same to g++ command line.
