Summary0000526: ide: makefile generation: Automatically include -lstdc++ if any C++ file is included in the project
Descriptionide: toolchain: .cpp files are compiled by calling gcc instead of g++ -- this is causing an issue with the basic sdl test

how should .cpp files be compiled?
Steps To Reproducetry compiling attached project

-- the ide generated makefile will make the following call: gcc -m32 obj/debug.linux/sdlTest.o -lSDL -o obj/debug.linux/sdlTest
(that call will fail)

and compare with this command: g++ -o test-sdl sdlTest.cpp -lSDL

(running test-sdl will say nothing if sdl test is successful)
Additional Informationin IDE, linking results:

   obj/release.linux/sdlTest.o:(.data.DW.ref.__gxx_personality_v0[DW.ref.__gxx_personality_v0]+0x0): error: undefined reference to `__gxx_personality_v0'

   collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

sdlTest (Release) - 1 error, no warning

Have you tried adding stdc++ in the Linker tab/Libraries ?

<ESphynx> and my note is about the missing -lstdc++
<ESphynx> which is probably the issue.
<redj> I have not
<ESphynx> do we want to force -lstdc++ when a .cpp is included? maybe.
<redj> (tried stdc++)
<redj> well, since calling g++ doest that obviously, it might be natural that when you add .cpp files they have the -lstdc++ on which you can later disable
<redj> (if that's possible)
<ESphynx> good point.
<ESphynx> g++ does that ... let's force it.
<ESphynx> disable - no need.

I think this has to do with the order in which SDL and stdc++ are put on the linker command. If it is the case I don't need we should switch to invoking g++.

Updated the description. Fix as it says.

Since GCC 4.5, we're running into very inconvenient crashes on freeing libraries containing C++ code but not linked through the g++ command:

As a work around for these GCC version, let's invoke g++ for both compiling C++ files and linking projects containing C++ files.

UPDATE: As a matter of fact, the actual problem is that -lstdc++ makes use of the shared libgcc, and so -shared-libgcc must be used when linking with 'gcc'.
An alternative is to link libstdc++ statically with -static-libstdc++ .
