Output of file : AOUT4LB.DOC contained in archive : OXCC1432.ZIP

`aout4lb' is used to modify the symbols in a .o file. -- e.g. myfile.o
The modifications are listed in a .4lb file. -- e.g. myfile.4lb
Output is placed in a .olb file. -- e.g. myfile.olb

The .4lb file has 2 types of entry:
rename: _oldsym _newsym
export: _symbol

All renames are completed before exports are processed.
Symbols which are exported are given global characteristics,
all other symbols are given local characteristics, comdefs
are moved to bss.

If a library entry is composed of multiple source files, then
the globals which link the source files may be spurious when
the combined files are stored as a library or archive entry. Use
`aout4lb' to clean up the result. In a dynamic linking environment,
global symbol clashes must be avoided. After `aout4lb' has set up
the desired globals, `strip' may be run to eliminate the local
symbols and thus make the library entry smaller.

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read:
