I have added my C source file, MYFILE.C, to my uVision project. When I compile and link the project, all external functions and variables of this module are reported as Error: undefined reference to .... I am sure that these functions and variables are defined in the other modules. What is the reason for this error?
The GNU tools are case sensitive. The file extension '.C' (uppercase C) is considered to be a C++ module, not a C module. The function and variable names are not compatible across C and C++ modules unless they are defined as extern "C".
Change the file extension to '.c' (lowercase c) and add this file to your project again. The filename may contain lowercase and uppercase characters.
