 Post subject: "ifstream" not working in kernel, even when I use g++

I am trying to read/write to a .txt file using "fstream" to store permanent data, even if the system reboots.
The problem is that when I go to compile, it says:

Code:
kernel.cpp:(.text+0x52): undefined reference to `std::basic_ifstream<char, std::char_traits<char> >::basic_ifstream()'
ld: kernel.cpp:(.text+0x6d): undefined reference to `std::basic_ifstream<char, std::char_traits<char> >::open(char const*, std::_Ios_Openmode)'
make: *** [Makefile:47: link] Error 1


I tried using g++ instead of gcc, but it still did not work.

Does anyone know how to fix this?

PS: I am following off of this tutorial: https://github.com/Absurdponcho/PonchoO ... ead/kernel

Here is the code:


Makefile:


Code:
OSNAME = CustomOS

GNUEFI = ../gnu-efi
OVMFDIR = ../OVMFbin
LDS = kernel.ld
CC = g++
ASMC = nasm
LD = ld

CFLAGS = -ffreestanding -fshort-wchar -mno-red-zone -fno-exceptions
ASMFLAGS =
LDFLAGS = -T $(LDS) -static -Bsymbolic -nostdlib

SRCDIR := src
OBJDIR := lib
BUILDDIR = bin
BOOTEFI := $(GNUEFI)/x86_64/bootloader/main.efi

rwildcard=$(foreach d,$(wildcard $(1:=/*)),$(call rwildcard,$d,$2) $(filter $(subst *,%,$2),$d))

SRC = $(call rwildcard,$(SRCDIR),*.cpp) 
ASMSRC = $(call rwildcard,$(SRCDIR),*.asm) 
OBJS = $(patsubst $(SRCDIR)/%.cpp, $(OBJDIR)/%.o, $(SRC))
OBJS += $(patsubst $(SRCDIR)/%.asm, $(OBJDIR)/%_asm.o, $(ASMSRC))
DIRS = $(wildcard $(SRCDIR)/*)

kernel: $(OBJS) link

$(OBJDIR)/interrupts/interrupts.o: $(SRCDIR)/interrupts/interrupts.cpp
   @ echo !==== COMPILING $^

   @mkdir $(BUILDDIR)

   @mkdir $(OBJDIR)

kernel.cpp


Code:
#include <fstream>
#include <stdint.h>
using namespace std;

#include "kernelUtil.h"
#include "eif.h"
#include "userinput/keyboard.h"
#include "prepare_os/prepare-os.h"
#include "prepare_os/frame_handler.h"
#include "ahci/ahci.h"



extern "C" void _start(BootInfo* bootInfo){

    KernelInfo kernelInfo = InitializeKernel(bootInfo);

    GlobalRenderer->Clear();

    IntInfo defaultInfo = GetDefaultIntfSettings();

    // this is just to make the interface (basically just plotting pixels)

    InitializeInterface(defaultInfo);

    // Here is where I do the file opening

    ifstream myFile;

    // I am just testing this out to see if it compiles, 
   
    myFile.open("info/username.txt");


    while(true){
        asm ("hlt");
    }
}


Thanks for your help! :D

"ifstream" is part of the C++ standard library. You need to port the C++ standard library to your OS before you can use anything in it.

It's also a good idea to use a cross-compiler. (I personally would also get rid of GNU-EFI and use plain UEFI headers with a cross-compiler, but that's just me.)

Don't trust OS development tutorials. They're full of bugs.
