Many years ago I was using the Intel compiler suite to merge object
files, resolving all the symbols that that process implies, but
possibly leaving other unresolved symbols, into a new object file.
Now I find I want to do the same thing again, but the world has moved
on. The MS linker will only output DLL or EXE format, the Intel
compiler uses the MS linker, and even the GCC doesn't admit to the
I am on a WIN32 platform using Visual Studio .NET, but producing
object files without platform or library involvement. I supose the 16
to 32 bit switch may have confused the issue, but I suspect that the
files are still in Intel Object Format.
Does anyone have any hints, suggestions, pointers etc.?
