QSctpSocket does not compile
i'm trying to play around with QSctpSocket, Linux (Ubuntu 18.04), Qt 5.9.5
QtCreator won't compile, g++ says:
../sctptest/main.cpp:8:5: error: unknown type name 'QSctpSocket'; did you mean 'QTcpSocket'?
(i really meant QSctpSocket)
QT -= gui QT += network CONFIG += c++11 console CONFIG -= app_bundle
what am i missing?
Might be a silly question, but are you sure you are using Qt 5.9.5 to build your application ?
QSctpSockethas been added in Qt 5.8.
Just as a note.
I tried in my Mint linux with Qt5.9.1
and it seems not active.
It is unless Qt was built with
SCTPdisabled. The second condition is to allow QDoc to do its magic.
Well it is a version from online installer.
So i do wonder why it seems compiled without.
@SGaist and others
This is standard Ubuntu Qt package (open source version); i do have /usr/include/x86_64-linux-gnu/qt5/QtNetwork/qsctpsocket.h which starts with "#if !defined(QT_NO_SCTP) || defined(Q_CLANG_QDOC)"
So how can i check if QSctp is supported? And what is Q_CLANG_QDOC?
Do i need to install additional packages? Linux Sctp module is enabled (which shouldn't make a difference when compiling).
Does your .h file also show the class part in
also could you test if QT_NO_SCTP is defined ?
@mrjj indeed, class QSctpSocket is greyed out in QtCreator and QT_NO_SCTP is defined. So probably Ubuntus Qt package is not compiled with SCTP support?
surprisingly, the OnlineInstaller variant for MSVC2015
is shipped with QT_NO_SCTP defined as well
On MacOS QT_NO_SCTP is not defined
Both 5.11 from the online installer.
seems like you'll have to compile the Qt libs yourself to enable the feature for your OS-distribution
@J.Hilk i think we will completly forget about Qt Sctp support and write a wrapper for the C-socket interface.
