Does this thread
contain the answer?
If this is a console application, does it have
an implementation of main()?
yes the signature of the main is in this example:
int main(int argc, char* argv)
Please show the full linker command, and indicate the name of
the object file that contains main().
The full linker command shows (I split the flags for a better reading):
g++ -o build/target.exe -mconsole -enable-stdcall-fixup -mthread
I have tested the same call with another example (only the *.cpp / *.o
file changes) and it works. The difference is the cpp code, but
a compiler call run's without an error. I don't understand why
different sources with the same linker command creates different
The linking process should be deterministic, so the compiled object
code creates the same linker calls.
I have checked my sources, but some examples must have this preprocessor part:
#if defined(_WIN32) || defined(__CYGWIN__)
and some examples must not have this part (same linker / compiler call)
