Cannot run shared object in batch mode

ROOT Version:_ 6.30/02
Platform:Linux/Fedora 34
Compiler:gcc version 11.3.1 20220421

I have a following macro named: hello_root.C

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

void hello_root()
        cout << "Hello ROOT!" << endl;

I am not able to execute the code using shared library in the batch mode.

For my use case, I have to generate a shared library and then run it in the batch mode
as follows:

root[0] .L hello_root.C++
Info in <TUnixSystem::ACLiC>: creating shared library ./
root[1] .q

Followed by (page 27 of this document ),

root -b -q

without output! Is this a bug?

Can anyone test to find out what is wrong with this type of execution?

I see the same thing (on Mac). The macro is loaded but not executed.
The following is working though:

root [0] .L
root [1] hello_root()
Hello ROOT!

The doc you a referring too is quite old. It could be this behavior has changed.

I know that it works in various different ways.
This post is resulting from my previous post, for which I am still looking for an optimal solution.

It seems to be a Cling issue. May be @vvassilev has an idea about it.
