1.06 (update to v1.05)
Written by Alexis WILKE (c) 1993-1994
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):
Dice (Upto V2.x at least)
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)
lk is quicker that those linkers and has no major bugs.
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
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.
Any Aminet mirror, for example ftp.luth.se (220.127.116.11)
or ftp.cdrom.com (18.104.22.168).
Those two files are free. However there is a registration
fee payable to the author to have the full version of
lk tool. This fee is of 15 US dollars or 90 French Francs.
This _distribution_ is a freeware. It contains only a limited
version of the linker. A registered version is available
separately, that one is a shareware.
