Invoking the Link-Editor

You can either run the link-editor directly from the command line or have a compiler driver invoke the link-editor for you. In the following two sections the description of both methods are expanded. However, using the compiler driver is the preferred choice. The compilation environment is often the consequence of a complex and occasionally changing series of operations known only to compiler drivers.

Note -  Starting with Oracle Solaris 11, various compilation components have been moved from /usr/ccs/bin and /usr/ccs/lib, to /usr/bin and /usr/lib. However, applications exist that refer to the original ccs names. Symbolic links have been used to maintain compatibility.
