SYMORDER(1)                 General Commands Manual                SYMORDER(1)



NAME
       symorder - rearrange a list of symbols

SYNOPSIS
       symorder [ -s ] orderlist symbolfile

DESCRIPTION
       sysmfile is a file containing symbols to be found in objectfile, 1 sym-
       bol per line.

       objectfile is updated in place to put the requested  symbols  first  in
       the symbol table, in the order specified.  This is done by swapping the
       old symbols in the required spots with the new ones.   If  all  of  the
       order symbols are not found, an error is generated.

       This  program  was specifically designed to cut down on the overhead of
       getting symbols from /vmunix.

Sun386i DESCRIPTION
       Symbols specified on the command line are moved to the beginning of the
       output  symbol table, not swapped.  Therefore, the symbols specified on
       the command line will appear in order at the beginning  of  the  output
       symbol  table, followed by the original symbol table with the gaps cre-
       ated by the moved symbols closed.

OPTIONS
       -s     Work silently, that is, display nothing except  error  messages.
              This is useful for checking the error status.

FILES
       /vmunix
