makerpl Overview

The primary tasks of makerpl[32|64] are:

preprpl[32|64] is used prior to linking. The Linker produces a temporary .ELF file as output that is then passed to makerpl[32|64].

The makerpl[32|64] tool takes the temporary file as input and produces both an import library (.a) and a final extended .ELF format file with the extension .RPX or .RPL

The import library can be used as an input to lin.ELFking to make other .RPL files that are automatically, dynamically linked at runtime by the OS.
