11.45 --export_all, --no_export_all

Controls the export of all global, non-hidden symbols to the dynamic symbols table.


Use --export_all to dynamically export all global, non-hidden symbols from the executable or DLL to the dynamic symbol table. Use --no_export_all to prevent the exporting of symbols to the dynamic symbol table.

--export_all always exports non-hidden symbols into the dynamic symbol table. The dynamic symbol table is created if necessary.

You cannot use --export_all to produce a statically linked image because it always exports non-hidden symbols, forcing the creation of a dynamic segment.

For more precise control over the exporting of symbols, use one or more steering files.


The default is --export_all for building shared libraries and dynamically linked libraries (DLLs).

The default is --no_export_all for building applications.
