SYNOPSIS

lorder

DESCRIPTION

The lorder utility uses nm(1) to determine interdependencies in the list of object files specified on the command line. lorder 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.

EXAMPLES

$ ar cr library.a ‘lorder ${OBJS} | tsort‘

SEE ALSO

ar(1), ld(1), nm(1), ranlib(1), tsort(1)
