LORDER(1) General Commands Manual LORDER(1)
lorder - find ordering relation for an object library
lorder file ...
The input is one or more object or library archive (see ar(1)) files.
The standard output is a list of pairs of object file names, meaning
that the first file of the pair refers to external identifiers defined
in the second. The output may be processed by tsort(1) to find an
ordering of a library suitable for one-pass access by ld(1).
This brash one-liner intends to build a new library from existing `.o'
ar cr library `lorder *.o | tsort`
nm(1), sed(1), sort(1), join(1)
tsort(1), ld(1), ar(1)
The names of object files, in and out of libraries, must end with `.o';
nonsense results otherwise.
