Netbeans C++

Thu Sep 14, 2017 4:15 pm

Greetings from St Louis Missouri USA

I am using Netbeans and the C++ compiler plugin to develop an application for home owners to use the raspberrypi
I am a C/C++ programmer with 20 years experience programming other single board computers for other systems running Windows and
Linux. I am trying to port an application over to the raspberrypi. I have it ported. It works but locks upsometimes. Most likely a memory problem somewhere. I am looking for some other people with more experience using Netbeans and the C++ compiler plugin. My first question relates to the following Netbeans C++ compiler config setting. There is a drop down box which says ...

Open MP

Q1) What are these for ? Where are they documented ?

Q2) Can valgrind be made to work on the PI ? Or is there another tool like valgrind that I can use to debug my application.

It is using standard template library container classes and I suspect something got messed up in the port from Windows to linux.

My application is a zigbee to IP router for Enecsys micro inverters. It uses the local serial port because there is a Zigbee radio with a prolific USB dongle that plugs into the PI My application also uses pthreads with Berkley sockets - Multiple threads

Is there anybody also out there using Netbeans and C++ for the raspberrypi ?

If yes please contact me to exchange some emails.

I have 20+ years experience with the C++ language but little Linux experience.

I would enjoy hearing from anybody that is using Netbeans with ANY C++ compiler to develop apps for the PI

Best regards

1) pthreads is the primary library which implements the POSIX threading API used for multithreading under Linux. You may have to link to it when using multihreading (AFAIK the C++ multithreading support of GNU libstdc++ is built on top of it).

OpenMP is a library which can accelerate your software on multicore systems if you use its macros with sections of code which are parallelizable.

I think those options just ensure that the respective libraries are linked in.

2) Did you try

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install valgrind
