c++.stlsoft - COMSTL vs. MinGW: compiling error

reply Chinfu <chinfu.ku gmail.com> writes:
Hi,
    I encountered a problem while I tried to complile C++ source codes
(listed below). I use MinGW-5.1.4 [GCC 3.4.5 (mingw-vista special r3)]
for compiling under Windows XP Pro. (SP2) and STLSoft 1.9.57. The error
I got is as follows:

\MinGW\bin\g++.exe -c -I\MinGW\include -I\stlsoft-1.9.57\include -I"\Microsoft

Hi,
   It's me again. I found my mistake. By adding "namespace stlsoft{ namespace
comstl{...} }" around the macro COMSTL_IID_TRAITS_DEFINE(ISpVoice), I've
compiled it without error.
(I also corrected some errors in souce codes in the previous post.)

But I got the following 'warning' while linking,
Warning: .drectve `/DEFAULTLIB:"uuid.lib" /DEFAULTLIB:"uuid.lib" ' unrecognized

And there is no output while I run the generated execution file. Any help is
appreciated. The source codes are listed below.

Doh! Wrong again. It does. I'm writing a couple of examples of how to do all this ... be with you shortly. Matt

I'm writing a couple of examples of how to do all this ... be with you shortly.

I've written up an example using ISpVoice directly, and it fails to talk for me also. I will try and find out why. In the meantime, here's an example using VOLE. #include <vole/vole.hpp> #include <comstl/util/initialisers.hpp> #include <iostream> int main(int /* argc */, char** /* argv */) { try { comstl::com_initialiser coinit; vole::object speaker = vole::object::create("SAPI.SpVoice"); #if defined(STLSOFT_COMPILER_IS_MSVC) && \ _MSC_VER < 1310 // VC++ 6 cannot use the "normal" VOLE way of explicitly // specialising the method function template on return type, so // we have to use invoke_method_v() speaker.invoke_method_v(L"Speak", "I have something to say!", 0); #else /* ? _DEBUG */ // The "normal" VOLE way speaker.invoke_method<void>(L"Speak", "I have something to say!", 0); #endif /* _DEBUG */ return EXIT_SUCCESS; } catch(std::bad_alloc&) { std::cerr << "out of memory" << std::endl; } catch(vole::vole_exception& x) { std::cerr << "operation failed: " << x.what() << ": " << winstl::error_desc_a(x.hr()) << std::endl; } catch(std::exception& x) { std::cerr << "operation failed: " << x.what() << std::endl; } catch(...) { std::cerr << "unexpected condition" << std::endl; } return EXIT_FAILURE; } I'm also doing a FastFormat version. I'll put them all up on the STLSoft wiki site shortly. HTH Matt

If you look again at the code

    }
    const char* str="hello, world";
    msp->sayit(str,13);
    return 0;
}


This fails to speak because:
- the call to sayit() is made immediately before the program exits.
- the Speak() command is passed the SPF_ASYNC flag, which causes the speech to
be executed on a worker thread

So the reason if fails to speak is because the program exits before it can get
it out.

There are two ways to make this speak:
- add a Sleep() call after sayit() - 1.5 seconds is required on my system to
get out the whole sentence
- change SFP_ASYNC to SPF_DEFAULT, causing the Speak() call to be synchronous
