Hi, I'm programming a Lpc1343.
I have to create a list of elements,

struct lista {
   uint16_t inf;
   struct lista *pun;

struct lista *punt;
punt = (struct lista *)malloc(sizeof(struct lista));

but when i call the malloc, the compiler returns me the following error:

./../../../arm-none-eabi/lib/thumb2/libc.a(lib_a-sbrkr.o):  In function 
sbrkr.c:(.text+0x12): undefined reference to `_sbrk'

Looks like you use a memory model without heap management.
You need to use a memory model which supports heap (malloc etc).
In your C compiler there should be a setting to select the memory model 
somewhere. Check the compiler manual for details.
