Linker Does Not Load the Complete Library PSS ID Number: Q40559 Article last modified on 01-24-1989 PSS database name: S_QuickC
The answer to the question
How can I include an existing object file or stand-alone library in an in-memory program?
which is on page 131 of the “Microsoft QuickC Compiler for IBM Personal Computers and Compatibles Programmer’s Guide” is misleading.
It should be restated to fully explain the situation as follows:
The linker puts the complete contents of the library in the program only if the library is a Quick library. From any other library, the linker only loads the object module that contains the function(s) called.
