SUMMARY

The text below presents the LINK32 librarian, its command line options, and how to use the utility.

This information differs somewhat for the FORTRAN PowerStation 32 for Windows NT linker, LINK. Please see the documentation for that product for more details.

MORE INFORMATION

LINK32.EXE performs several functions, specified by one of the following command-line options:

   -LINK   Create an executable file (linking)
   -LIB    Create or modify a library (librarian)
   -DUMP   Display information about a library
                

The LINK32 librarian is a fairly simple tool that adds, removes, and extracts COFF object files from libraries.

The LINK32 -LIB options are as follows:

    -DEBUGTYPE:{COFF|CV|BOTH}  Do not use
   -DEF:[filename]            Create an import library
   -EXTRACT:membername        Extract an object file from a library
   -LIST                      List object files in a library
   -MACHINE:i386              Required with the -DEF option,
                                 not used otherwise
   -OUT:filename              Specifies library name
   -REMOVE:membername         Remove object module from library
   -SUBSYSTEM                 Do not use
   -VERBOSE                   Do not use
                

The following examples demonstrate using these options to perform common library management tasks.

Example #1

To build the library TEST.LIB that contains the modules A.OBJ and B.OBJ, use the following command line:

   LINK32 -LIB -OUT:TEST.LIB A.OBJ B.OBJ
                

Example #2

To modify the existing library TEST.LIB to add the modules A.OBJ and B.OBJ, use the following command line:

   LINK32 -LIB TEST.LIB A.OBJ B.OBJ
                

Example #3

To create a file that lists the object modules in a library, use the following command line:

   LINK32 -LIB -LIST TEST.LIB >TEST.LST
                

This command line generates a listing that contains the names of the object files in the library; the listing does not list the routines in each object file. To retrieve this information, use the -DUMP option.

Example #4

To update a library with a new version of an object module, use the following command lines:

   LINK32 -LIB TEST.LIB -REMOVE:A.OBJ
   LINK32 -LIB TEST.LIB A.OBJ
                

No single command can do this. Avoid the following commands:

   LINK32 -LIB TEST.LIB A.OBJ             !if A.OBJ is in TEST.LIB
   LINK32 -LIB TEST.LIB A.OBJ -OUT:TEST.LIB
   LINK32 -LIB TEST.LIB -REMOVE:A.OBJ A.OBJ
                

NOTE: Modules cannot be added to a library which has had all of the modules removed.

NOTE: The object module specified by -REMOVE:obj_name must have the same case as shown by:

   LINK32 -LIB -LIST
                

In other words, -REMOVE is case sensitive.
