creating dll fails: missing references

Kees Bleijenberg

HI all,

 

I try to create a dll with ghc (ver 8.6.5)  on Windows 7 64 bits. I ‘am using the dll with loadLibrary in a cpp program in Visual Studio. I create the dll with:

ghc Vogels.hs

ghc -c StartEnd.c

ghc --make -static -shared -fPIC Vogels.o StartEnd.o -o Vogels.dll

 

StartEnd.o defines HsStart and HsEnd to initialize and close the Haskell runtime.

 

This works. I can create the dll and use the dll in VS.

But, if I replace in Vogels.hs the line b=True with   b <- doesFileExist vogelsFn, creating the dll fails with error message:

Vogels.o:fake:(.text+0x35c): undefined reference to `directoryzm1zi3zi3zi2zmB9tglvOQ6L9Cf7zzVEJ1S6t_SystemziDirectory_doesFileExist_closure'

Vogels.o:fake:(.text+0x37d): undefined reference to `directoryzm1zi3zi3zi2zmB9tglvOQ6L9Cf7zzVEJ1S6t_SystemziDirectory_doesFileExist_closure'

Vogels.o:fake:(.data+0xd0): undefined reference to `directoryzm1zi3zi3zi2zmB9tglvOQ6L9Cf7zzVEJ1S6t_SystemziDirectory_doesFileExist_closure' 

 

It looks like GHC can’t find the Directory package. I’ve installed this package. What can I do about it and how can I find out  the dependencies in a *.hs or *.o file? Almost all documentation about dll’s is about Linux or about using dll’s in Haskell.

Re: creating dll fails: missing references

Phyx
You're calling gcc my hand, which means you have to tell it which packages your source need. 

Pass it "-package directory" and it should work.
