I am now learning c language, and my school put all assignments on myth, every time we have to log in by ssh and execute command remotely.
Thus I want to download the files and execute them on my own macbook. However when I use make command to compile the files, I got errors and warnings such as :
gcc -g -O0 -std=gnu99 -Wall $warnflags -m32 -c -I. vectest.c -o vectest.o
warning: unknown warning option '-Wlogical-op'; did you mean '-Wlong-long'?
vectest.c:10:10: fatal error: 'error.h' file not found
I googled these problems but could not find a satisfactory answer. can anyone help me solve this ? or I have to use a linux machine instead?
Indeed; compilers for various platforms (even if it's the "same" compiler, such as GCC) may have different flags and behaviors. You may be able to get it to work - you could remove the
-Wlogical-op flag from
$warnflags in your
Makefile, but if the
error.h file is a system-supplied header file, you're probably in trouble. Therefore, I suggest that you download e.g. VirtualBox and run Linux on it.
error(3) for what this header provides. It's not specific to linux but to the GNU C library. What you COULD do is provide your own minimal implementation of these functions and write your own
You could even `#define' them to do nothing at all, but then you will probably lose some error reporting in the existing code. Maybe you could try to find a teacher understanding the problem and discuss the issue ... it's probably better to learn standard C not using any platform-specific extensions.
