/usr/lib/libssd.so: undefined reference to `__length_error(char const *)'
/usr/lib/libssd.so: undefined reference to `ios::rdbuf(void) const'
/usr/lib/libssd.so: undefined reference to `ostream::write(char const *, int)'
/usr/lib/libssd.so: undefined reference to `string_char_traits<char>::assign(char &, char const &)'
/usr/lib/libssd.so: undefined reference to `cout'
