Hi List!
I would like to write externals using c++ and Xcode. I came across flext which is a very good solution, but a) I was not able to build it on my system and b) I do not need the overhead of included MAX/MSP compatibility.

using extern "C" i managed to do the first step:

#include "m_pd.h"

extern "C" void helloworld_setup(void)
post("AH JEAH!!");

// .... = class_new( .....);

this is compiled as c++.

pd is posting "AH JEAH!!" as expected, but recompilation using "class_new" xcode tells me "error: no matching function call to 'class_new'. here my technical knowledge ends.

is there a "lightweight" solution writing an external in c++ just for pd?
