> Why is the class "SqlODBC" duplicated?
This is interesting. I do not think my C++ book spells it out that I cannot have class A in foo.cxx
and a class A in bar.cxx. In fact I already discovered that the two classes A will collide (duplicate default
constructor A::A, even if all other member functions are different) if I link an executable that uses both
foo.o and bar.o.
Is there a way around this problem? In C, I can declare functions and variables "static" to "hide" them
from the linker.
What is the C++ equivalent for classes? (Any C++ experts here?)
In this specific case, the file history_odbc.cxx will disappear with the next commit of mhttpd, hopefully
today. mlogger and mh2sql already do not use it.
And I will commit the Makefile change renaming libmidas.so to libmidas-shared.so, so we can build it
by default but still link midas core executables to the normal midas library.
This will catch such a problem if it happens again.
