Re: [MiNT] wide-char and g++

I'm trying to compile unrar for MiNT. Now that mintlib has wide-char-support it's worth a try.

I updated mintlib from cvs to get the wide-char-support, and ran into the following error:

strlist.o:strlist.o:(.text+0x20a): undefined reference to `wcsncpy(wchar_t*, wchar_t const*, unsigned long)'

and more.

These symbols exist in libc.a, but the prototype in wchar.h has const wchar_t* for the second argument.

When I write a function for example:

size_t wcslen(wchar_t const* s)
  return wcslen( (const wchar_t*)s);

it works, i.e. the symbol is found.

On cygwin the prototypes are the same, but the build succeeds. Is there a compiler-switch for this issue, or another solution (except supplying all the missing functions)?

I'm using Vincent's cross-compiler.

Right. I have an outstanding patch for wchar.h, I'm just testing it a little more.
