Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

[Compilation] Cannot use FPThreadsCriticalSection

Hi everyone,

I am trying to use threads and mutex in my project. To do that, I use FRunnableThread and FPThreadsCriticalSection. I have no problem with the implementation of FRunnableThread, but as soon as I tryed to use FPThreadsCriticalSection, I got compilation errors.

The first one was that VS didn't find "pthread.h", so I have install a Windows implementation of it, and then VS find it. But now, I have another issue : the linker doesn't seems to find the library...

I am getting this error :

error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol __imp_pthread_mutexattr_init referenced in function "public: __cdecl FPThreadsCriticalSection::FPThreadsCriticalSection(void)" (??0FPThreadsCriticalSection@@QEAA@XZ)

I have add the library to the LIB variable, but it doesn't change anything.

Is anyone have an idea of what is going on ?

Thanks !

Hey - you probably want to be using FCriticalSection, rather than the pthread implementation?

The funny part is that... it's the same, right?

Heh :)

Only if PLATFORM_USE_PTHREADS is true, which it won't on Windows. In that case FCriticalSection is defined in WindowsPlatformProcess.h.
