Relink without recompiling


There is a need to link a new dynamic library to a big number of exes.
Unfortunately, I cannot recompile/link all these exes against the new library.

Is there any way to link an existing executable with the new library?
(everything has been compiled using the xlc tool)

I am not sure what you want to do: you can simply load a shared library using the "LIBPATH" and "LD_LIBRARY_PATH" variables instead.

Could you please explain your problem in more detail?

I hope this helps.
