Linking order question
Wed Nov 13 15:27:00 GMT 2013
A library *BAR* is composed of the object file *bar**.o* that contains
the symbol *foo* and *qux*.
A *FOO* library depends on symbol *foo*.
A *QUX* library depends on symbol *qux***.
Can I assert the following linking orders outcomes?
-lFOO -lQUX -lBAR : OK and logically right
-lFOO -lBAR -lQUX : OK <-- this still works because FOO brought
in bar.o so QUX still finds the qux symbol.
-lBAR -lQUX : FAIL bar.o is excluded because it was not
found to be useful to anyone preceeding -lBAR.
Is this correct?
Thanks and regards,
