I have experienced problems with Oracle OCI library. I was unable to properly\nlink\nOCI library using gcc. Probably gcc compiler provided with SFU is unable to\nlink\nnative Windows library.\nOracle provides OCI dll (named oci.dll) and additionally OCI stub library\n(oci.lib)\nfor Microsoft MSVC compiler. I have attempted to link dora with both OCI dll\nand\nOCI lib. Link with OCI lib resulted with many strange linker errors\n(probably gcc does not recognize the "lib" file format).\nLink with OCI dll i have performed in two ways:\n-\- using options: -L$(ORACLE_HOME)/bin -loci\n- gcc produced error message that library is not found\n-\- providing full library pathname in command line:\n$(ORACLE_HOME)/bin/oci.dll\n- gcc produced error messages about unresolved symbols, although these\nsymbols are located in this library.\n\nIf somebody did successfully link any native Windows library with any program\nwritten for SFU, please inform me how to link such library properly.\n\nOn the other hand, I couldn't bring to work the second compiler provided with\nSFU\n-\- the Microsoft compiler. Maybe somebody was able to compile\na C++ source file or create a shared library using it ?\nWhich compiler are you using ?
