Problem description

Some Tru64 UNIX ld functionality does not exist on HP-UX. This functionality will be temporarily available in the Tru64 UNIX Migration Environment for HP-UX.

The ld development tool links object files to produce executable object files and shared libraries. The Tru64 UNIX ld tool supports a different command-line interface than the ld tool on HP-UX. Some features available on Tru64 UNIX are not available on HP-UX, and other features are available using a different ld option on HP-UX.

The Migration Environment contains Tru64 UNIX APIs, development tools, and commands and utilities to assist customers in migrating their applications from Tru64 UNIX to HP-UX.

Solution description

The ld development tool is in the Tru64 UNIX Migration Environment for HP-UX.

Applications will be able to use this development tool from the Migration Environment. Please note that the Migration Environment is temporary.

The ld development tool in the Tru64 UNIX Migration Environment is a driver that translates Tru64 UNIX ld options to HP-UX ld options and invokes the HP-UX ld. The ld driver also has -port_info and -port_command options, which provide porting information and command-line option translations that can be used to edit Makefiles so that they use the native HP-UX ld.

For more information about using the ld driver in the Tru64 UNIX Migration Environment for HP-UX, see the Tru64 UNIX Migration Environment User Guide and ld(1) in the Migration Environment.

For a detailed description of the differences between the Tru64 UNIX ld and the native HP-UX ld, see the Tru64 UNIX to HP-UX 11i Porting Guide.
