er_archive (and all other tools) can process executables whose symbolic information is recorded in a side file.
er_archive now only copies shared objects, and does not generate an archive file; the –A flag is silently ignored.
er_archive supports a –s type flag to specify archiving or source, object, and ancillary files. if type is all, all source files that can be found are archived; if type is used only those source files that are referenced in the experiments are archived.
er_archive examines an environment variable, SP_ARCHIVE_ARGS, which you can use to specify –s and –m arguments. If the SP_ARCHIVE_ARGS variable is set when an experiment is recorded, the er_archive that is run automatically can do source archiving. It will be processed when er_archive is run manually.
