Re: Why my 'ar.exe' and 'ld.exe' does not work with the inlineparameter '@objectslistfile'

Hi Max,

Just a quick note - release 2.14 is now out, so you might want to
upgrade.  It will not fix this problem however...

Correct.  The GNU binutilities do not support the "@<file-containing-list-of-filename>" 	 
syntax.  They never have.

Basically because it is not needed.  You can achieve the same thing
using the tools that are already available.  For example:

      ar.exe -r archive `cat objectfilelist`

Note the backquote characters (`).  These cause the text between them
to be executed and their output to be substituted in their place.

If you cannot live without support for the "@filelist" syntax please
feel free to develop a patch to add it and then submit the patch to
this list.
