I'm a recovering VMS and Microsoft Windows programmer. One feature that
both those programming environments have is dynamic linked libraries. The
UNIX (*) dynamic linked library concept does not appear to be equivalent.
For those people who know the VMS RTL what I'm looking for (and not
finding) in UNIX) is the equivalent of the LIB$FIND_IMAGE_SYMBOL/LIB$CALLG
calls. Does such a feature exist in UNIX? If so, where can I find out about
it? apropos dymanic refers me to ld.so, which from the "extensive" :-; man
page, does not provide the same functionality--it apears closer to
LINK/SHARE with LIBRARY/SHARE than the above function calls.
