Calling Fortran functions from .cu files (linking problem)

Hi everybody, I am new into CUDA and nvcc, so hopefully my doubt will be trivial!

I have to call a fortran function from a .cu file, so I set up a very simple example. Here are the two files:

#include <stdio.h>
#include <cuda.h>
#include <cuda_runtime.h>

void extern hello_(void);
global void kernel(void){
printf(“hello world CU\n”);

int main (void){
printf(“hello world C \n”);

return 0;

subroutine hello()
implicit none

write(*,*) "Hello from Fortran routine..."

end subroutine hello

finally, I compile the two as follow:

nvcc -c;
gfortran -ffree-form -c hello.f90;
nvcc -o hiFromAll helloworld.o hello.o -lgfortran ;

getting the following output:

helloworld.o: In function main': tmpxft_00000604_00000000-4_helloworld.cudafe1.cpp:(.text+0x90): undefined reference to hello_()’
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status

Does somebody have any idea where the error in the linking procedure is?

I have also made some tests with the correspondent .c .f90 version (excluding the cuda calls and the nvcc compilation) and it works…

instead of this:

void extern hello_(void);

try this:

extern “C” void hello_(void);

nvcc uses C++ style linking, so you need to force C-style linking:

Thanks txbob, that solved the problem! Also thanks for the link…it is very useful.
