Re: [eclipse-clp-users] Probably a simple question to answer about using external C++ code for predicates

Hi Yvon,

_ZSt4cout is defined in g++'s standard C++ library (libstdc++), so it 
looks like you are not loading this library when you load Did you link in libstdc++ when you compiled, and do you have LD_LIBRARY_PATH set correctly (i.e. 
libstdc++ is in one of the specified directories in LD_LIBRARY_PATH).
[I am assuming you are using Linux or Solaris, since your file has a .so 

I know you are showing a simplified version of your program, but in 
general, it does not make sense to have a main() procedure in code that 
is intended for a dynamic library (.so) [I think your error is also 
caused by  the use of the << output function]. In addition, sending 
output in your C++ code to stdout (as done in <<) is probably not a good 
idea, as this depends on where stdout is directed to in the ECLiPSe 
session you are loading your file into.
