you may missed that header file in c program.

include that particular header file and try again

Here's your header:

#ifdef __cplusplus
           int myvar;

Here's your variable:

#include "myvar.h"
int myvar = 123;

The #ifdef __cplusplus stuff tells C++ modules to expect C linkage for the variable and prevents them from expecting C++ name-mangling.
