Hi,

I have a singleton object that contains a std::map object and this singleton needs to be used by a main progamming thread and it's sub thread.
Everything is fine until i dymanically load a .so file and try to use the singleton. In the main thread and it's sub thread the singleton shows all the same values in the map object but when i look once inside the .so file the map is completely blank.

Can anyone help?

It looks to me like you have two copies of the singleton: one linked into main and the other in the .so.

You can avoid this by passing a reference to the map to the .so functions and thus avoid "linking" the map into the .so.

Otherwise, you need to export global symbols (using -Wl,-E if GCC is your compiler) and dlopen your .so, if that's what you are doing, with RTLD_GLOBAL.

Actually...

> RTLD_GLOBAL

...shouldn't be relevant for your problem. That's just for exporting RTTI. See if the -E flag sorts you out on its own.

rstaveley: Thanks for he comment but i am having trouble testing your solution as i am using autoreconf and ./configure to build the project. DO you know how to set the -E flag using them?

I'm not experienced with autoconf.

Since it is a test, I'd run ./configure as usual and then manually edit the Makefile. Does the generated Makefile make sense?

Otherwise, you could take a look through the ./configure script and see if it has something like --with-compiler-option, but I'd be surprised if it has anything useful.

If you type...

  ./configure --help

...do you get the options?
