problem with math.h 's function in Eclipse

hello, 

 

I made a system with Qsys which just contain a Nios II processor and its On-chip-memory. 

then , I use the .sopcinfo File generated by Qsys to create a nios II application with Eclipse. 

 

My problem is that I didn't succeed in using the library math.h 

 

I wrote the following simple code : 

# include <stdio.h># include <math.h> 

 

int main() 

double result =5; 

result = floor(result); 

 

return 0; 

 

And I obtain the error : undefined reference to `floor' main.c /testnios line 24 C/C++ Problem 

 

Do you have any idea about my problem or what I did wrong ? 

 

thank you

Hi, 

Try to set additional linker key: -lm

Gotta link it against the library libm... "-lm" needs to be added at the tail end of your compilation command. This is not specific to Nios II. It wouldn't work with any GCC compiler without linking against libm.

Hi, 

 

I have the same problem with Quartus 13 / Nios II EDS 13.0. 

 

It's a linker error. 

 

You can try to add manualy "-lm" option for the linker but no effect on my computer.

# include <stdio.h># include <math.h> int main() { printf("Hello from Nios II!\n"); double test = cos(3.14); return 0; }  

 

It seems Altera has some problems with tests before releasing theirs softwares...

Thanks you force-pc

I work also with Quartus 13 / Nios II EDS 13.0.

Hi LETS, 

 

I try to read differents posts on the web like: 

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/7824439/c-math-linker-problems-on-ubuntu-11-10 

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/16344445/im-using-math-h-and-the-library-link-lm-but-undefined-reference-to-pow-st 

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/8480013/eclipse-c-c-cdt-add-l-option-linking-math-module-gcc-lm 

 

The generated Makefile seems to be good because Eclipse places the -lm argument at the end... 

 

I'm now installing Quartus 13.0sp1 to see if the problem persists.

==>> No more problem with 13.0sp1. F***ing software! 

==>> Don't use 13.0 with math.h lib & nios II.
