Re: [Rd] pcre library in R (PR#9319)

I have the same problem, trying to cross-compile.

I'm running Ubuntu Edgy, kernel 2.6.17-10-generic, on an IBM T60.

I downloaded the Makefile from CRAN and ran make CrossCompileBuild with the following error messages (also ran each make one at the time and the problem occurs in make R):

undefined reference to `__pcre_ucp_findprop'
undefined reference to `__pcre_ucp_findprop'
undefined reference to `__pcre_ucp_findprop'
undefined reference to `__pcre_ucp_findprop'
undefined reference to `__pcre_ucp_findprop'
more undefined references to `__pcre_ucp_findprop' follow collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

make[4]: *** [R.dll] Error 1
make[3]: *** [../../bin/R.dll] Error 2
make[2]: *** [rbuild] Error 2
make[1]: *** [all] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory


Can you please report in greater detail how you added the files pcre_ucp_searchfuncs.c and ucptable.c Mr. Kinney? I have downloaded the files but I don't know where to put them, under /WinR/R-2.4.0/src/extra/pcre? And to which makefile,

Thank you.

Best wishes,
Daniel Berg
