libdl - dynamic linking library
cc [ flag... ] file... -ldl [ library... ]
Historically, functions in libdl provided for dynamic linking support. This functionality now resides in libc(3LIB). This library is maintained to provide backward compatibility for both runtime and compilation environments. The shared object is imple- mented as a filter on the runtime linker. See New application development need not specify -ldl.
The shared object provides the following public interfaces. See Intro(3) for additional information on shared object interfaces. dladdr dladdr1 dlclose dldump dlerror dlinfo dlmopen dlopen dlsym
