Is anyone out there familiar with building shared libraries under Cygwin?
Does "g++ -shared" work? When I tried it with a simple test program, I got:
Cannot export _bss_end__: symbol not defined
Cannot export _bss_start__: symbol not defined
Cannot export _data_end__: symbol not defined
Cannot export _data_start__: symbol not defined
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
Does it generate .so files that can be used in the usual unix fashion?
I realize there's something called dlltool; is that just for generating
windows-standard DLLs, or is that the only way to generate a proper shared
library with cygwin?
