ORACLE 10.2 Pro*C precompiler not reading header file

I'm pre-compiling a C program containing Pro*C code with Oracle 10.2 and AIX 5.2

The Oracle precompiler reads the $ORACLE_HOME/precomp/admin/pcscfg.cfg file which contains the definition of the sys_include variable (set to /usr/include).

The Pro*C compiler complains that it doesn't know what the size_t type is and the Oracle header files that use the size_t type are reporting errors.

Here's an example error being reported on the sqlcpr.h file:

extern void sqlglm( char*, size_t*, size_t* );
PCC-S-02201, Encountered the symbol "size_t" when expecting one of the following

size_t is defined in the stdio.h header file in the /usr/include directory. I'm including the stdio.h header in my example.pc file before I include the sqlcpr.h header.

I'm issuing the proc command as follows:

proc iname=example parse=full

Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?

Solution Description

The 'sys_include' and 'include' precompiler options are not set correctly. Set 'sys_include' and 'include' precompiler options in the pcscfg.cfg file located at $ORACLE_HOME/precomp/admin or include on the command line when invoking 'proc'.

For example, here is a recommended way to set the variable properly:

Run the following command to obtain the compiler location:

gcc -v

Reading specs from /usr/lib/gcc-lib/i386-redhat-linux7/2.96/specs gcc version 2.96 20000731 (Red Hat Linux 7.3 2.96-128)

Use the path returned above (remove specs and replace with include)



I am guessing that the part of having both sysinclude and include is your issue.

Checking if value of int can be long

java long-integer

I have an array of ints ie. [1,2,3,4,5] . Each row corresponds to decimal value, so 5 is 1's, 4 is 10's, 3 is 100's which gives value of 12345 that I calculate and store as long.
