TIGCC kbd_queue problem
« on: October 13, 2017, 04:32:23 pm »
Well, I started into tigcc  programming, and i am unable t compile this example. Has anyona an idea why?
Code: [Select]
#include <tigcclib.h>

void _main(void) {
    void *kbq = kbd_queue();
    unsigned short key;
    unsigned long count = 0;

    // clear the screen
    clrscr();

    // print the string telling the user to press a key
    printf("Please press a key.\n");

    // while no key was retrieved from the keyboard queue
    while (OSdequeue(&key, kbq)) {
        // increment the variable number by one
        printf("Queue Check: %lu.\n", count);
        ++count;
    }
   

    // tell them what key they pressed
    printf("The keycode was %hu\n", key);

    // wait for input before exiting
    ngetchx();
}

It would help if you included the compiler output.

That usually signifies a missing -l(library) argument, forgetting to #include something, not having the library files in the right places, or the PATH variables being wrong. Try any of those things and you'll probably fix it.

Are you using TIGCC, or GCC4TI? What version is it, how is your environment set up, and how are you running the compiler?

I have no problem compiling the example myself with GCC4TI on the command line in my Linux system (after adding the appropriate #define USE_TI89/USE_TI92PLUS/USE_V200 lines to the source). It's possible your installation or setup may be misconfigured somehow.

Sorry for the slow response time (school & stuff). I'm on WinXP pro sp3 and I'm using TIGCC v 0.98 Beta. I installed it using an exe installer.
Edit: Re-installed Tigcc as 0.95 (non-beta). I still get hte same error, though.
Edit 2: I tried gcc4ti. Didn't work neither. Maybe i'll try it on win7?

So... I tried it on windows 7. Guess what? I got exactly the same error...  :-\
Oddly enough, if i download the project folder directly from technoplaza, then it does indeed compile...
I'm really perplexed....

Just to be sure: the code i use in the project i created is exactly the same...



BIG Change (that's why i decided to make a standalone post):
After i added #define USE_V200 at the beginning it somehow worked ;D... Still, it's something VERY odd.

Edit (Eeems): Merged double post

It may have to do with the project settings, if you're using the IDE and .tpr files. I'm no longer familiar with that since on Linux, TIGCC/GCC4TI comes as a command-line tool only (there used to be the KTIGCC IDE, but it uses obsolete KDE 3 libraries that have not been available in popular distros for ages).

I do seem to recall that the compiler can be picky about including the proper constants in the source files like one or more of USE_TI89/USE_TI92PLUS/USE_V200, and sometimes MIN_AMS (if you're using features introduced after the very first AMS 1.01 version).

On an unrelated note, I would recommend sticking with GCC4TI, as it was updated much more recently than TIGCC. The latest version of TIGCC I know of was released an entire decade ago.
