12.145 --symbolic

Sets the DF_SYMBOLIC flag in the SHT_DYNAMIC section for a shared library.


The DF_SYMBOLIC flag changes the symbol resolution algorithm of the dynamic linker for references within the library. The dynamic linker searches for symbols starting with the shared object rather than the executable image. If the referenced symbol cannot be found in the shared object, the dynamic linker searches the executable image and other shared objects as usual.
