Linking ICE/C++ to a legacy C program

pjtaitpjtait Member Philip TaitOrganization: Subaru TelescopeProject: Fibre-Fed Multi-ObjectSpectrograph;HyperSuprimeCam ✭✭
I have an existing C program (compiled with gcc on RH9 Linux). I'd like to extend it to be able to Publish data using Icebox, but I'm aware there are pitfalls with linking C++ and C code.

Any advice appreciated, whether ICE-specific or not.

(I'm using ICE 3.3.0).

    Hi Philip,

    It's very common to combine C++ and C libraries; I don't anticipate any problem.

    Best regards,
