Subject: Re: [OMPI users] Open MPI and Objective C

Greetings Scott,
The NSLog call should be no big deal since it is provided by the Cocoa frameworks and is inherent to Objective C.

The mpicc compiler may be a different thing. It may not recognize that it supposed to be calling gcc to compile in Objective-C mode and not in pure ISO C-99. I will have look up in my notes to recall the instructions necessary to make regular gcc or clang to compile properly with MPI.

The extension is fine, so I would think that gcc should go into Objective-C mode. I think MacResearch has an example on their site that could help.

Good luck,

Nothing to do with us - you call a function "NSLog" that Objective C doesn't recognize. That isn't an MPI function.

        I have been asked to convert some C++ code using Open MPI to Objective C and I am having problems getting a simple Obj C program to compile. I have searched through the FAQs and have not found anything specific. Is it an incorrect assumption that the C interfaces work with Obj C, or am I missing something?
