The text below presents the LINK32 command line options that display information about a library or an executable file and how to use them.
FORTRAN PowerStation 32 comes with a different linker, LINK. For more information on LINK.EXE, please see the documentation.
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 -DUMP option provides access to information in COFF object files, libraries, and PE executable files.
The LINK32 -DUMP options are as follows:
-ALL Provides all information available as formatted output -ARCHIVEMEMBERS Name and size of each object file in a library -DISASM Disassembles the contents of the file -EXPORTS Do Not Use -FPO Do Not Use -HEADERS Displays header information from each section in the file -IMPORTS Do Not Use -LINENUMBERS Displays line number information in the symbolic information -LINKERMEMBER:[1|2] Displays names of routines in a library -MAP Symbol maps of libraries -OUT:filename Do Not Use - Use output redirection to store output in a file -RAWDATA Displays requested information in raw, unformatted, form -RELOCATIONS Displays relocation information -SECTION:name Displays section-specific information -S Shorthand notation for -SUMMARY and -SYMBOLS -SUMMARY Displays header information summary -SYMBOLS Displays symbol information in object files and libraries
The following examples demonstrate using these options to perform common library management tasks.
To create a file that contains a listing of the object modules in a library, use the following command line:
LINK32 -LIB -LIST TEST.LIB >TEST.LST
To create a file that contains a listing of the code routines in a library, use the following command line:
LINK32 -DUMP -LINKERMEMBER:2 TEST.LIB > TEST.LST
The -LINKERMEMBER:1 option lists the routines in the order in which they occur in the library. The -LINKERMEMBER:2 option lists the routines in alphabetical order. The -LINKERMEMBER option generates both lists.
To create a file that contains a listing of the routines and the modules in which they appear, use the following command line:
LINK32 -DUMP -SYMBOLS TEST.LIB > TEST.LST
To create a file that contains summary information listing the size (in hexadecimal notation) of the sections in an executable file, use the following command line:
LINK32 -DUMP -SUMMARY TEST.EXE
This command produces output such as the following:
Summary .text 9200 Code .bss F4600 Uninitialized static data .rdata 200 Resource data .const 200 Constant data .data 2400 Initialized static data .CRT 200 Runtime data .idata 600 Import data .reloc 2200 Relocation data
The following command fails to direct all of its output to the TEST.LST file:
LINK32 -DUMP -LINKERMEMBER TEST.LIB -OUT:TEST.LST
This command sends only its initial output to the file; the remainder appears on the screen. Redirect the output of the command into a file to work around this problem.
