How to link multiple object files to get a library file

Hi friends,

I have compiled some C++ files in Linux, and so I have the object files ready. But my goal is to link them into a library file (like a DLL or LIB file in windows). In windows I did it via VS2008 and by creating a library-type project. But in linux, I have no idea how I can do it via command lines. I am using intel C++ V11.1 (x64). Please help me solve the problem.
Thank you,
Hamidreza,

Hi
Easy,
require to use ar and ranlib for create lib.
after you add flag to call lib at instruction compiler.


compiler -c yoursource.c ??.c ??.c ??.c ??.c ext.... (result .o)
ar yourlib.a precedent_result.o (result .a)
ranlib yourlibresult.a (for index)
(after require also your inform path header -I , path Lib -L -l your newlib (flag compiler)

better that you use same compiler two but not obligated
Regards
I forget....
add an dummy link .SO to .a (ln) for after it could be compile as shared

The stock linux method with ar and ranlib is the one to use with .o files made without -ipo. This is recommended as your first step. The xiar tool which comes with icc is capable of dealing with ipo objects.
