Synopsis

#include <dlfcn.h>

Description

The <dlfcn.h> header shall define at least the following symbolic constants for use in the construction of a dlopen() mode argument:

RTLD_LAZY
Relocations are performed at an implementation-defined time.
RTLD_NOW
Relocations are performed when the object is loaded.
RTLD_GLOBAL
All symbols are available for relocation processing of other modules.
RTLD_LOCAL
All symbols are not made available for relocation processing by other modules.

The following shall be declared as functions and may also be defined as macros. Function prototypes shall be provided.

int    dlclose(void *);
char  *dlerror(void);
void  *dlopen(const char *, int);
void  *dlsym(void *restrict, const char *restrict);
