LORDER(1) BSD General Commands Manual LORDER(1)

NAME

lorder — list dependencies for object files

SYNOPSIS

lorder file …

DESCRIPTION

The lorder utility uses nm 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 when a library is created to
determine the optimum ordering of the object modules so that all refer‐
ences may be resolved in a single pass of the loader.

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

SEE ALSO

ar, ld, nm, ranlib, tsort
