Error: Linker - without any additional message

Post by bbanelli »

Greetings to all,

I am not really sure what is going on here (bug?), however, I suppose some sort of error message is required to be produced after linker error.

My case is here: viewtopic.php?f=12&p=544084#p544084

Everything works with dynamic library and related PB's functions, however, this code doesn't compile (only if I remove line 16).

Code: Select all

c:\Users\x\Desktop>"c:\Program Files\PureBasic\Compilers\pbcompiler.exe" main2.pb -t

PureBasic 5.71 LTS (Windows - x64)

Compiling main2.pb

Error: Linker


Code: Select all


Import "websocket.lib"
  NewWebSocketClientConnection.i (scheme.i, host.i, path.i, echoMessage.i)

Define *scheme, *host, *path, *echoMessage, *returnEchoMessage
*scheme = AllocateMemory(1024)
*host= AllocateMemory(1024)
*path = AllocateMemory(1024)
*echoMessage = AllocateMemory(1024)
PokeS(*scheme, "wss", -1, #PB_UTF8)
PokeS(*host, "", -1, #PB_UTF8) ;
PokeS(*path, "/echo", -1, #PB_UTF8)
PokeS(*echoMessage, "Hello from PureBasic through Secure Web Socket feat. Golang :)", -1, #PB_UTF8)
*returnEchoMessage = NewWebSocketClientConnection(*scheme, *host, *path, *echoMessage)
MessageRequester("Response", PeekS(*returnEchoMessage, -1, #PB_UTF8))
Here's the (relevant?) output from nm with -C flag:

Any clues?

Thank you in advance,
