    Linux To FreeBSD Porting Compile Problems

    Im trying to get some of my code compiling on more and more platforms, im having trouble with the FreeBSD headers. Right now im using:

    Code:
    #include <netinet/in.h>
    #include <unistd.h>
    #include <sys/types.h>
    #include <sys/socket.h>
    #include <netinet/in.h>
    #include <cerrno>
    #include <netdb.h>
    #include <arpa/inet.h>
    And its spewing errors:

    Code:
    some-box# gcc -o AI_RUN main.cpp -lpthread
    In file included from ../Wrapper Classes/sockets_nix.h:7,
                     from ../Wrapper Classes/sockets.h:44,
                     from botclass.h:22,
                     from main.cpp:6:
    /usr/include/netinet/in.h:235: syntax error before `;'
    /usr/include/netinet/in.h:287: syntax error before `;'
    In file included from /usr/include/netinet/in.h:469,
                     from ../Wrapper Classes/sockets_nix.h:7,
                     from ../Wrapper Classes/sockets.h:44,
                     from botclass.h:22,
                     from main.cpp:6:
    /usr/include/netinet6/in6.h:122: syntax error before `['
    /usr/include/netinet6/in6.h:144: syntax error before `;'
    /usr/include/netinet6/in6.h:149: syntax error before `;'
    /usr/include/netinet6/in6.h:612: syntax error before `*'
    /usr/include/netinet6/in6.h:614: syntax error before `*'
    /usr/include/netinet6/in6.h:615: syntax error before `*'
    /usr/include/netinet6/in6.h:616: syntax error before `*'
    /usr/include/netinet6/in6.h:631: type specifier omitted for parameter

    /usr/include/netinet6/in6.h:636: syntax error before `*'
    /usr/include/netinet6/in6.h:638: type specifier omitted for parameter
    In file included from ../Wrapper Classes/sockets.h:44,
                     from botclass.h:22,
                     from main.cpp:6:
    ../Wrapper Classes/sockets_nix.h: In method `bool Socket::listen(short unsigned int, int = 128)':
    ../Wrapper Classes/sockets_nix.h:116: `struct sockaddr_in' has no member named `sin_family'
    ../Wrapper Classes/sockets_nix.h:117: `struct sockaddr_in' has no member named `sin_port'
    ../Wrapper Classes/sockets_nix.h:118: `struct in_addr' has no member named `s_addr'
    ../Wrapper Classes/sockets_nix.h: In method `bool Socket::connect(const char *, short unsigned int)':
    ../Wrapper Classes/sockets_nix.h:164: `struct sockaddr_in' has no member named `sin_family'
    ../Wrapper Classes/sockets_nix.h:165: `struct sockaddr_in' has no member named `sin_port'
    Am I including the wrong headers for this platform? Im assuming eventhough headers might be named different, that the functions like connect() take the same parameters.


    Thanks for your time guys.

    Try using g++ (not gcc) for compiling your C++ programs
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.

    Ya, i meant to use that =P although i dont think it made much of a difference:

    Code:
    some-box# g++ -o AI_RUN main.cpp -lpthread
    In file included from ../Wrapper Classes/sockets_nix.h:7,
                     from ../Wrapper Classes/sockets.h:44,
                     from botclass.h:22,
                     from main.cpp:6:
    /usr/include/netinet/in.h:235: syntax error before `;'
    /usr/include/netinet/in.h:287: syntax error before `;'
    In file included from /usr/include/netinet/in.h:469,

                     from botclass.h:22,
                     from main.cpp:6:

    thx for your time S.

    #include <netinet/in.h>
    #include <unistd.h>
    #include <sys/types.h>
    #include <sys/socket.h>
    #include <netinet/in.h>

    The first in.h is a duplicate - perhaps you should remove it

    Again, thanks for spotting a minor error but it doesnt fix any of the compiler errors. They are still all there.
