The Alaska Linker - ALINK.EXE Foundation

The linker ALINK creates a single file containing executable 32 bit code from OBJ and LIB (libraries) files. OBJ files are the program modules of an application created by the compiler and LIB files contain collections of several OBJ files. The output file of the linker can be either an EXE or a DLL file. All files to be linked by ALINK must comply with the Common Object File Format (COFF).

If an application is created by the ProjectBuilder PBUILD.EXE it is not necessary to start the linker explicitly. The ProjectBuilder invokes the linker automatically.
