Using gcc/egcs with MSVC .lib files
Fri May 14 15:08:00 GMT 1999
Can anyone confirm what the current position is?
As I understand, these options are possible
- use link to build gcc object files against xxx.lib
- make a wrapper, build the xxx.lib into xxx.dll, and use dlltool to
make the necessary libxxx.a for gcc
but (maybe not true any longer?) ld can't build with .obj/.lib.
However I'm proposing to use a 3rd party tool that puts my compiled code
into a library before linking. Can I extract all the .obj from the xxx.lib
and store them into libxxx.a directly? Or can I store the gcc objects into a
.lib with MS lib.exe for building with link.exe?
Thanks for any enlightenment.
