14.8 Using dlopen to Access a C++ Library From a C Program

If you want to use dlopen() to open a C++ shared library from a C program, make sure that the shared library has a dependency on the appropriate C++ runtime ( for -compat=5).

To do this, add -lCrun for -compat=5 to the command line when building the shared library. For example:

example% CC -G -compat=5... -lCrun

If the shared library uses exceptions and does not have a dependency on the C++ runtime library, your C program might behave erratically.
