Description paulmatthews 1998-12-01 12:31:56 UTC
Is libgsl a bit broken, or is just me? For example if I try
to compile this simple program :

  #include <math.h>
  #include <gsl_errno.h>
  #include <gsl_fft_real.h>
  #include <gsl_fft_halfcomplex.h>

  void main()
   int i, n = 100;
   double data[n];
   gsl_fft_real_wavetable real_wavetable;

   for (i = 0; i < n; i++)
    data[i] = 0.0;

   for (i = n / 3; i < 2 * n / 3; i++)
    data[i] = 1.0;

   gsl_fft_real_wavetable_alloc( n, &real_wavetable );
   gsl_fft_real_init( n, &real_wavetable );
   gsl_fft_real( data, n, &real_wavetable );
   gsl_fft_real_wavetable_free( &real_wavetable );

using :

  gcc -lgslfft -lgslerr -lm -o fft fft.c

The following errors occur :

  /tmp/cca007241.o: In function `main':
  /tmp/cca007241.o(.text+0x0): multiple definition of `main'
  /usr/lib/libgslfft.a(benchmark.o)(.text+0x0): first

  ld: Warning: size of symbol `main' changed from 1056 to

[Additional information] I downloaded the new gsl library from the gnu
site, compiled it up, rewrote the test program to fit the new api, and
it failed in exactly the same way.  Either they are doing something
consistently wrong, or I'm misssing something very obvious. If this is
a "your holding your mouth the wrong way" type of thing I'm going to
look silly...

[ARRG] No it's me. Where's my gun.

gcc -o fft fft.c -lgslfft -lgslerr -lm

This works OK. It's where you put the libraries on the command line. I
can't believe I've never noticed this before.
