Best practices for libraries and linkers (part 8)

Part 8 is the conclusion of the series on the best practices for libraries and linking. The core set of best practices are:

  • Ensure at link time that all symbols are resolved.
  • Minimise the number of symbols of global scope.
  • Specify the library search paths at link time.

Putting this series of articles together turned out to be a fair amount of work. Hopefully you can see from the scale of the topics why we chose to break it down into bite-sized chunks. I'll be happy to hear feedback on whether you found it useful, or what other topics you would like discussed.
