By Darryl Gove-Oracle on May 27, 2011
Part 3 of the series on best practices for linking C/C++ applications is up. This sections focuses on using
LD_DEBUG to examine application startup.
The paper talks about the options
LD_DEBUG=init which shows the initialisation and finalisation stages of an applications run, and
LD_DEBUG=bindings which shows how the symbols are bound between the application and libraries.
