Adding a class to ROOT confusion

Accessing my class through Cling in more recent ROOT versions takes an extra step that I do not remember in older versions (roughly before 6.08).

For example following closely this example, I create a library containing the class ABC, all files attached to this post.

However, executing the following lines fail:

root [0] gSystem->Load("libABC.dylib")
(int) 0
root [1] ABC a
ROOT_prompt_1:1:4: error: expected ';' after expression
ROOT_prompt_1:1:5: error: use of undeclared identifier 'a'

but the following lines succeed:

root [0] gROOT->ProcessLine("#include \"ABC.h\"")
(long) 0
root [1] ABC a
(ABC &) Name: ABC Title: 

Does this include statement trigger a lookup of the rootmap file that otherwise is not accessed when doing an explicit load of the library ?

I think @axel should know the answer.

It’s broken! I’m checking…

Apologies for the long wait: I can reproduce it, working on a fix. Thanks for reporting, Eddy!

I still did not get around to debug this. I’ll let you know next week.
