lorder (1) - Linux Man Pages

lorder: list dependencies for object files

NAME

lorder - list dependencies for object files

SYNOPSIS

file ...

DESCRIPTION

The utility uses nm(1) to determine interdependencies in the list of object files and library archives specified on the command line. The utility outputs a list of file names where the first file contains a symbol which is defined by the second file.

The output is normally used with tsort(1) when a library is created to determine the optimum ordering of the object modules so that all references may be resolved in a single pass of the loader.

When linking static binaries, and tsort(1) can be used to properly order library archives automatically.

ENVIRONMENT

NM
Path to the nm(1) binary, defaults to ``nm ''
NMFLAGS
Flags to pass to nm(1).

EXAMPLES

ar cr library.a `lorder ${OBJS} | tsort`
cc -o foo ${OBJS} `lorder ${STATIC_LIBS} | tsort`

HISTORY

A utility appeared in AT&T System v7 .
