However, IMNSHO, if LD can find the references in out-of-order .o object files it should be able to do the same with out-of-order library archives of object files but then I don't code LD.
The linker on MacOSX apparently can -- according to the man pages, the traditional restrictions on ordering of -l options don't apply to it. But on most systems, static libraries are scanned once when encountered on the command line, and a .o file is only pulled in if it defines a symbol that is referenced by the currently active set of .o files. Once the relevant set of .o files has been found, all the references between them are then fixed up. Dynamic libraries may be different, since they're treated as a single unit rather than a collection of .o files. -- Greg _______________________________________________ gtk-list mailing list gtk-list@xxxxxxxxx http://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/gtk-list
