- Subject: a question about -l option
My question is about the link option, -l. Like, -lrt, We know that
librt.a (or librt.so) is the actual file which is searched for. But i
had a an experience and i saw that if there is no librt.a, other "rt"
combinations are searched too, like , librtdm.a.
I have a suggestion. please mention this fact in the GCC or LD manual.
I have a question now. If I have several files like librtam.a,
librtbm.a and librtcm.a and then i use -lrt, which one will be linked?
(Or all of them?)
