lorder(1)                 BSD General Commands Manual                lorder(1)


NAME

     lorder -- list dependencies for object files


SYNOPSIS

     lorder file ...


DESCRIPTION

     The lorder utility uses nm(1) to determine interdependencies in the list
     of object files specified on the command line.  lorder outputs a list of
     file names where the first file contains a symbol which is defined by the
     second file.

     The output is normally used with tsort(1) when a library is created to
     determine the optimum ordering of the object modules so that all refer-
     ences may be resolved in a single pass of the loader.


EXAMPLES

           ar cr library.a `lorder ${OBJS} | tsort`
