Possible Compile Errors

The following are a list of compile errors that have been encountered with recommendations on what they mean and how to fix them.

GenomeSequence.cpp:161: error: explicit instantiation...

If you are compiling on OSX and encounter this error:

GenomeSequence.cpp: In instantiation of ‘std::basic_ostream<_CharT, _Traits>& std::operator<<(std::basic_ostream<_CharT, _Traits>&, const std::basic_string<_CharT, _Traits, _Alloc>&) [with _CharT = char, _Traits = std::char_traits<char>, _Alloc = std::allocator<char>]’:
GenomeSequence.cpp:161: instantiated from here
GenomeSequence.cpp:161: error: explicit instantiation of ‘std::basic_ostream<_CharT, _Traits>& std::operator<<(std::basic_ostream<_CharT, _Traits>&, const std::basic_string<_CharT, _Traits, _Alloc>&) [with _CharT = char, _Traits = std::char_traits<char>, _Alloc = std::allocator<char>]’ but no definition available
Try compiling with:
make USER_COMPILE_VARS=-mmacosx-version-min=10.8


error: Sam[filename].h: No such file or directory or "'Sam[classname]' has not been declared"

This error and other, similar errors with "Sam....h: No such file or directory" or "'Sam...' has not been declared" typically means that the library build failed. Check for a previous error in your compile.

A successful compile of the library will publish SamFile.h and all the other header files from the library into libStatGen/include. If one of the programs within the statgen repository fails to compile with one of these errors, then the library did not successfully publish the header files and did not successfully build.


InputFile.h (or any other library file): No such file or directory

Errors like the following:

FastQFile.cpp:20:23: InputFile.h: No such file or directory
In file included from FastQFile.cpp:21:
FastQFile.h:23:26: StringBasics.h: No such file or directory

Tend to occur if the library directory containing the file has not yet been compiled. Try recompiling the entire library by typing make in libStatGen.


Compile Error on first time building

Record the error.

Try to recompile and see if that fixes the problem. If it does fix the compile error, let me know what the original error was so I can fix the dependency so it compiles in the correct order.

NOTE: In the latest version, this should be fixed.
