Re: C++ compiling problems

I did notice at one time that in C++, global variables under cris-gcc on the devboard were not
being initialised.

For example, something like:

-------------- main.cpp -----------------

int globalVar = 10;

int main(int argc, char* argv[])
   if (globalVar == 10)
     //  this would not be reached

------------ end main.cpp -------------

However, if we changed it to:

-------------- main.cpp -----------------

int globalVar;

int main(int argc, char* argv[])
   globalVar = 10;
   if (globalVar == 10)  //  this succ
      // this is now reached

------------ end main.cpp --------------
I'm not sure if the above will work or not, but the behaviour I noticed was very very similar.
I did my workaround and that fixed it so I forgot about it.

The problem you're experiencing might be similar to this... i.e. classes not being initialised and
so the constructors are not called.  

Any comments ?  anyone noticed these problems with C++ too ?

I have some trouble with C++ compiling with the cris-gcc.

When I use a class as the one include below in this text the instance
MyClassInstance is NOT created when the program is started.
It is possible to create new instances while the program is running but the
static instance is for some reason not created.
The code works perfectly on a linux machine with gcc compiling but not on
etrax with cris-gcc.

Thanks in advance

      int myVariable2;

#include "MyClass.h"

       myVariable1 = 3;

       return myVariable1;
