LORDER(1)                   General Commands Manual                  LORDER(1)



NAME
       lorder - find an ordering relation for an object library

SYNOPSIS
       lorder filename...

DESCRIPTION
       Give  lorder  one  or more object or library archive (see ar(1V)) file-
       names, and it lists pairs of object file  names  --  meaning  that  the
       first  file  of  the pair refers to external identifiers defined in the
       second -- to the standard output.  lorder's output may be processed  by
       tsort(1)  to find an ordering of a library suitable for one-pass access
       by ld(1).

EXAMPLE
       This brash one-liner intends to build a new library  from  existing  .o
       files.

              ar cr library `lorder *.o | tsort`

       The  ranlib(1),  command  converts  an  ordered archive into a randomly
       accessed library and makes lorder unnecessary.

SEE ALSO
       ar(1V), ld(1), ranlib(1), tsort(1)

BUGS
       The names of object files, in and out of libraries, must end with `.o';
       otherwise, nonsense results.
