Subject [jira] Commented: (STDCXX-675) [MSVC] implement autolinking feature
Date Tue, 18 Dec 2007 23:21:43 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/STDCXX-675?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#action_12552933
] 

Travis Vitek commented on STDCXX-675:
-------------------------------------

If the new user takes advantage of the autolinking feature, they will have to modify their
build system to get it to work with a previous version of the library. i.e. they will need
to explicitly link the library file when they go back to 4.2.0.

Will this ever be useful for any compiler other than MSVC and ICC/Windows? Is there a way
that we can ensure the user links the right library on all platforms? This wouldn't avoid
the need to explicitly link the library, but it would eliminate issues with linking the wrong
library.

> At the moment the users of the library should explicitly specify the used library name
in linker command line. Here might be problems if the user's project was compiled with config.h
for some configuration (let's say 12d) but linked with library for another configuration (i.e.
libstd12s.lib).
> The MSVC and ICC/Windows has the posibility to specify the library using #pragma comment
(lib, libname) directive. So #including any header from the library will leads to linking
automatically with the proper library file.
