    Hi all

    I have to use the following API

    extern OSErr FSpCreate(
    const FSSpec * spec,
    OSType creator,
    OSType fileType,
    ScriptCode scriptTag )

    I have declared the following
    FSSpec *spec;
    unsigned char filename[64]="Aman";
    OSType creator="PTul";
    OSType fileType="Sd2f";
    ScriptCode scriptTag="smSystemScript";

    I have include the path Of "Files.h".
    There is no error upto this point But when i call the FSpCreate(spec,creator,fileType,scriptTag);
    then there is following error :-

    ld: form3.o illegal reference to symbol: _FSpCreate defined in indirectly referenced dynamic library /System/Library/Frameworks/CoreServices.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/CarbonCore.framework/Versions/A/CarbonCore

    I have to include the CarbonLib 1.0 but this lib file available in more than one directory.Which Path should I have to include? Plz help me.

    Thanks and Regards

    Have you added something like this to your .pro file?

    mac:LIBS += /System/Library/Frameworks/Carbon.framework/Carbon

    You might also want
    mac:LIBS += /System/Library/Frameworks/CoreFoundation.framework/Versions/A/CoreFoundation

    I don't know anything about Carbon, so this is just a shot in the dark. Basically the first thing to do is make ensure that you have specified all of the frameworks that need to be linked in; that's the usual cause of this.

    Hi all

    I have included the lib file and now when i compiling my application there is no error but still file is not created.I want to know about the FSSpec structure.

    I have passed the following values to this structure :-
    unsigned char filename[64]="Aman";;
    FSpCreate(&spec, 'ttxt', 'TEXT', smSystemScript); *

    I want to create file on root . What i should pass to parId and vRefNum?? How i can get the Volume reference number.

    Thanks and Regards
