QuestionUsing ba2str fails - why ? Pin

This is pretty simple function and compiles and works fine on X86.
Same usage , with same parameters passed to it, fails on ARM.

Description Resource Path Location Type
cannot convert ‘sockaddr_rc’ to ‘char*’ for argument ‘2’ to ‘int ba2str(const bdaddr_t*, char*)’ CBT.cpp /RPI_BT_CLIENT_ARM_/src/MODULES/M_CBT line 286 C/C++ Problem

I am at lost and could use some help to make it work.

It it helps, here is the code

C++
for (i = 0; i < num_rsp; i++) {
            // convert bdaddr to array addr for print
    ba2str(&(ii + i)->bdaddr, addr);  FAILS HERE
    memset(name, 0, sizeof(name));
    if (hci_read_remote_name(dev_descriptor, &(ii + i)->bdaddr,
            sizeof(name), name, 0) < 0)
        strcpy(name, "[unknown]");
    printf("remote address  %s  remote name  %s\n", addr, name);
}


Bluetooth addresses are a 6-byte hex number similar to an Ethernet MAC address. BlueZ provides convenience functions for converting between a 6-byte string in the format 00:11:22:33:44:55 and the bdaddr_t struct. Here are the function prototypes:

    int ba2str(const bdaddr_t *ba, char *str);
    int str2ba(const char *str, bdaddr_t *ba);

The function ba2str converts from the internal bdaddr_t to a zero-terminated string (the str parameter should have at least 18 bytes), and str2ba provides the opposite conversion. The first example makes use of the ba2str function.
