Re: [MiNT] ELF object linking
Indeed, I know this.
Since yesterday, so I’m only slightly ahead ;)
This is code from Armin (author of Resource Master) who built a new version (including Coldfire native) of RSM using this compiler. Basically its a standard m68k-elf-gcc toolchain with an „afterburner“ to convert the resulting ELF binary to TOS format.
Apparently useful if you want to create library code without putting each function into a separate file. The ELF lib format allows linkage on a per-function base, opposed to per-file like a.out. According to Armin, this is especially useful for linking C++ code which otherways gets bloated by multiple inclusion of empty vtables.
