    Carbon, n00b problem :)

    Thought I'd have a bash at a bit of Carbon today, but Xcode keeps moaning. Ive made this simple program to print the current time.

    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <CoreFoundation/CoreFoundation.h>
    int main (int argc, const char * argv[]) {
    	CFAbsoluteTime time;
    	time = CFAbsoluteTimeGetCurrent();
    	printf("%d", time);
        return 0;
    Now, with ZeroLink on, i get this error at runtime.

    ZeroLink: unknown symbol '_CFAbsoluteTimeGetCurrent'
    Test has exited due to signal 6 (SIGABRT).

    But with ZeroLink off, i get

    Undefined symbols:

    at compile time...

    I've obviously missed something, any help would be nice

    I've never programmed in this language, but have some experience in and Java.

    I wonder if time = CFAbsoluteTimeGetCurrent() shouldn't be time = CFAbsoluteTime.GetCurrent()

    Note the extra period between what is probably the Object class and the method.

    Hey. CoreFoundation is not Object-Oriented, its procedural. It should go like this:

    #import <Carbon/Carbon.h>

    int main (int argc, const char * argv[])
    printf("%d\n", (double)CFAbsoluteTimeGetCurrent());
    return 0;
