Re: Linking and Libraries (was [XaraXtreme-dev] Re: Success)

Alex: Why do you say that its /necessary/ for wxXtra to be built as a separate library?

Ben: If we can turn ZeroLink back on in the Xcode project (currently disabled because it caused problems) we will recover the purported performance benefits, and more, that the makefile gains by linking the project in chunks.

It builds as a separate library from the Makefile. I can't speak
for how the XCode project works (or doesn't work). Each of
the directories in fact builds as a separate library using
the Makefile, but actually it is only necessary that wxXtra

I certainly accept that conclusion, but could I put down a marker in
case I ever get around to discussing it, that I would not be able to
claim that I had seen 'make' use libraries in "each of the
directories". In fact, using XCode, I have not been able to link the
the object files in individual directories; and this was why I needed
to wait for Xara to deliver an XCode project the ones that I have
created, compile the sources but can't link them. 'make' seems to do
the final link using a command line with words like Kernel/*.o and
