I am trying to build a program that uses 'g_file_test' function but I get an error while linking. What are the libraries to add ?

Here are the make file and the build result :

====== MAKE FILE =====
Code:
gAE: gAE.o
    gcc -Wall -s -O3  gAE.o -o gAE -L/lib/libglib-2.0.so.0 `gnome-config --cflags gnome gnomeui` `gtk-config --cflags` `gtk-config --libs`
gAE.o: gAE.asm cdecl.inc gtk.inc
      fasm gAE.asm gAE.o
    

===== BUILD RESULT =====
Code:
Exécuter : Construire

Using makefile from ~/Documents/gAE
make: entrant dans le répertoire « /home/Grincheux/Documents/gAE »
gcc -Wall -s -O3  gAE.o -o gAE -L/lib/libglib-2.0.so.0 `gnome-config --cflags gnome gnomeui` `gtk-config --cflags` `gtk-config --libs`
gAE.oSad.text+0x8): undefined reference to `g_file_test'
make: quittant le répertoire « /home/Grincheux/Documents/gAE »
collect2: ld a retourné 1 code d'état d'exécution
make: *** [gAE] Erreur 1
    


===== END OF BUILD RESULT =====

Can someone help me ?

Here is the source file, sorry but the comments are in French.

Here are all the files used stocked into an archive file.

Thanks

obviously you reference external symbol "g_file_test", which is not defined in any object you link to.

This symbol is declared into the "Linux.inc" file included from "gAE.inc". This the way to do for any symbol. When linking you just have to add the right library, and it is not what I am doing !

Hey man, theres a typo in your building procedure:
gcc -Wall -s -O3 gAE.o -o gAE -L/lib/libglib-2.0.so.0 `gnome-config --cflags gnome gnomeui` `gtk-config --cflags` `gtk-config --libs`

You should replace that -L/lib/libglib... with `pkg-config --libs glib-2.0` (with the `` quotes)
-L is for specifying directories to look for libraries in, -l is for specifying those actual libraries, and you dont need the .so part of the name, or the directory leading up to it.. just it's name (without the lib part either).

Will try it out to see if it works.

Edit: Just edited my post to have the right code, my first attempt didnt work, in case you read it. So yeah, just use `pkg-config --libs glib-2.0` instead of -L/lib/libglib-2.0.so.0

I have re-read the doc about glib and found the answer, I join the new make file.

Thanks for your help

Damn, you were too fast Smile

But yeah, -lglib-2.0 will work, its suggested you use `pkg-config --libs glib-2.0`, as it'll include all the other libraries you need too (in this case, it makes sure that it include -liconv, since some parts of glib need it i believe.. although gcc may include it by default, either way.. cant hurt).

Thanks, but today I don't know all the needed libraries. I spend a lot of time in libraries searching...
