VERSION

DESCRIPTION

    lk is a linker which will create executable files from
    any valid Amiga object files and libraries. The following
    assemblers and compilers create compatible Amiga object files
    (note that this list is far from being complete):

        GenIm2
        Basm
        SAS/C
        Dice (Upto V2.x at least)
        Oberon

    The C compiler from Aztec and gcc create their own file
    formats and are not supported by lk.

    lk has a large amount of features (over 100 keywords)
    and is compatible with most of the existing linkers:

        SLINK 6.x  (SAS)
        BLINK 7.x  (The Software Distillery/SAS)
        ALINK      (Commodore)
        DLINK      (Dice)

    lk is quicker that those linkers and has no major bugs.

NEW FEATURES

    Each new upload includes a file named lk.history which
    describes new features.

    V1.06 all bugs known for compatibility with
          SLINK have been corrected.

          lk now supports archived libraries

SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS

    There should be no special requirements. However a
    system with less than 1Mb of memory will probably
    fail frequently. lk has been programmed to be compatible
    with OS versions 1.2 and 1.3. However it has been developed
    under V2.0 and V3.1, so there is no guarantee of compatibility.

    The use of lk also requires an assembler or a compiler
    which Amiga standard object files. To test if your program
    does, you can use this demo of lk and it
    will notify you if an invalid file is found.
