Creating a Library from IPO Objects

Linux*

Libraries are often created using a library manager such as
xiar
for Linux* or
xilib
for Windows*. Given a list of objects, the library manager will insert the objects into a named library to be used in subsequent link steps.
Example
xiar cru user.a a.o b.o
The above command creates a library named
user.a
containing the
a.o
and
b.o
objects.
Using
xiar
is the same as specifying
xild -lib
.

Windows Only

Create libraries using
xilib
or
xilink -lib
to create libraries of IPO mock object files and link them on the command line.
For example, assume that you create three mock object files by using a command similar to the following:
Example
[invocation] /c /Qipo a.cpp b.cpp c.cpp
Where [
invocation
] is
icx
for C++ or
dpcpp
for DPC++
.
Further assume
a.obj
contains the main subprogram. You can enter commands similar to the following to create a library.
Example
xilib -out:main.lib b.obj c.obj // or xilink -lib -out:main.lib b.obj c.obj
You can link the library and the main program object file by entering a command similar to the following:
Example
xilink -out:result.exe a.obj main.lib
