This question might have to do with some knowledge of AIX4.2.x based C++ compiler(xlC_r). I am new to this environment. here it goes:
i've a C++ class file with a certain static variable(say "astat". this goes into a shared library and this library is linked into an executable.
now when I run this executable(the file that intializes/defines this static var is part of only the shared library), i find 2 addresses for the static varible "astat" when accessed from 2 different functions. why would this happen ??
if you are familiar with AIX's makeC++SharedLib_r/xlC_r to create shared libs and executables respectively, is there a link line option to supress these multiple copies ?
