Hiding symbols at link time on hp-ux 10.20


Hi,
I am trying to build libraries in 10.20 with the "-h" link option.

I actually pass a file containing all the symbols to hide via +Wl,-c...

I get errors like:
/usr/c/bin/ld: can't hide symbol...
for all the symbols I want to hide.

Do you know why ?
How can I fix this ?

Thank you,
Amedee

Re: Hiding symbols at link time on hp-ux 10.20

please check whether the symbols are resolved within the module (executable or shared library) that you are trying to build. if they are not, they are unsats and the linker will not hide them.

Hi Ranganath,

Thanks for you reply.

You were right, the symbols were not concerning the module to be built.
This is not a problem anymore.

Thanks a lot,
Amedee
