llvm-lib - LLVM lib.exe compatible library tool


llvm-lib [/libpath:<path>] [/out:<output>] [/llvmlibthin] [/ignore] [/machine] [/nologo] [files…]


The llvm-lib command is intended to be a lib.exe compatible tool. See https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/7ykb2k5f for the general description.

llvm-lib has the following extensions:

  • Bitcode files in symbol tables. llvm-lib includes symbols from both bitcode files and regular object files in the symbol table.
  • Creating thin archives. The /llvmlibthin option causes llvm-lib to create thin archive that contain only the symbol table and the header for the various members. These files are much smaller, but are not compatible with link.exe (lld can handle them).
