LORDER(1) LORDER(1) NAME lorder - find ordering relation for an object library SYNOPSIS lorder file ... DESCRIPTION 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' files. ar cr library `lorder *.o | tsort` FILES *symref, *symdef nm(1), sed(1), sort(1), join(1) SEE ALSO tsort(1), ld(1), ar(1) BUGS The names of object files, in and out of libraries, must end with `.o'; nonsense results otherwise.
