Could someone tell me how to compile library sources into a SHARED library?
I looked in the GNU CC manual and saw a -shared option, but the manual said
it only worked on a few examples. The main problem I am having is with
the XPM library. It built as a .a file just fine, but I can't get it to
build shared, which is how fvwm expects it. If anyone has advice, please
send it to
For whatever reason, we don't currently get comp.os.linux.help at my office.
