- dynamic linking library
cc [ flag... ] file... -ldl [ library... ]
Historically, functions in libdl provided for dynamic linking support. This functionality now resides in libc(3LIB).
This library is maintained to provide backward compatibility for both runtime and compilation environments. The shared object is implemented as a filter on the runtime linker. See ld.so.1(1). New application development need not specify -ldl.
The shared object libdl.so.1 provides the following public interfaces. See Intro(3) for additional information on shared object interfaces.
64-bit shared object
