Cant compile using stl files

Postby magnomp » Tue May 28, 2019 9:34 pm

I'm trying to compile a code that uses stl <map> but I'm getting this error:
fatal error: map: No such file or directory

I'm using latest esp-mdf

Just to make sure it's not an error on my project, I did a copy of the development_kit/light sample project and simply added a

Code: Select all

#include <map>
to the light_example.c file, and then make -j4 flash, I got this output:

Code: Select all

$ make -j4 flash

Ok, just found out that I have to name the files as *.cpp if I want to use c++ stuff.
This seems obvious, but I used to code on esp-idf on PlatformIO and I could use c++ libraries and language features on .c files. I thought esp-idf build system compiled everything as c++ by default.

Also, it's woth to mention that after I renamed light_example.c to light_example.cpp I get a compile error on mlink_trigger.h line 83, whith is:
#ifdef __cplusplus
} // HERE
#endif /**< _cplusplus */

Functions that call C++ directly need to have the file format `cpp` or put `extern "C" in front of the function.

I suggest you: Write the function that needs to use the esp-idf interface in a `cpp` file, and put `extern "C" `. in front of the function. This can be called directly in c.
