I want to port a part of C code from Vxworks operatingsystem to Unix OS,but when I am trying do that,it dosen't compile
because it throws an error with the symbol table not found or inappropriate symbol table.How do I make my own symbol table or is there any other way where I can complie my code or make changes with the existing symblo table code.

Also, tell me where can I find the documents for building the symblo table code on the web?

A prompt response is highly appreciated.

"Symbol table not found" sounds more like a loader error than a compiler error.  I suspect that you're trying to link a file that's not a library.

Start with the basics.  Can you compile without linking?


   cc -c source.c

This isn't a compiler problem, but rather a linker problem. You're using a library (or a .a or .o or a .obj file) from another platform (Vxworks perhaps?), and trying to combine this with your code.

The solution is to only use the .c files from the vxworks project, and use whatever is available on the Unix OS (is it real Unix or Linux or what?).
