Hello,

 

           References to fork() function is not giving the compilation(bfin-uclinux-gcc) error. Why is it so?

 

Regards,

Hello Mike,

 

                   I have gone through this already. NoMMU systems doesn't have fork. One of my libraries uses fork system call but still I am not getting any compilation error. Why is it not giving the error is my doubt?

 

Thank you.

 

Regards,

 

Parimala.

if you know fork() isnt supported, then dont use it, end of story

 

depending on how exactly the library is built/linked/used may not include the object using fork(), or report the unresolved symbol as an error.  this is normal behavior.
