library issue


Im new to C++ and im trying to write a Windows GUI program.

At the moment i have a class the uses libxml (from linux) windows port
to parse an xml file however when i link the source into my other
source files, the linker fails with unresolved symbol errors.

What's interesting is how the only unresolved symbols are function
calls, not variable types.

Can anyone diagnose the problem, write back if more info is needed.

Im using mingw on windows 2000.

Many thanks,

Link errors are often off-topic here since they are usually caused by some
mistake made while setting up your project. And projects have nothing to
do with C++ _language_.

Types are not symbols. They exist only during compile-time.
Can anyone diagnose the problem, write back if more info is needed.
Please post to the right newsgroup.

I recommend comp.os.ms-windows.program mer.win32, but others may have more
suggestions, so check back soon.

That is why I recommend the Windows programming newsgroup.

With XML becoming the de facto data description standard, I am extremely surprised that there is no movement towards standardizing an xml library API for use with C and C++. Personally I have been working with libxml2 (www.gnome.org) for a while now, and I am quite comfortable with it. I believe that libxml2 is a good start, but I think a slimmer version of libxml2 should be standardized. Any thoughts?

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
