lv2soname - script which can be used in your build system to translate
a linker option into the soname
This manual page documents briefly the lv2soname command. This manual
page was written for the Debian distribution because the original
program does not have a manual page.
lv2soname script can be used in your build system to translate a linker
option (e.g. -lgtkmm2.4) into the soname (e.g. libgtkmm-2.4.so.1) for
the shared library that ld will link to when given that command line
option. It will generate the RDF triples needed to tell hosts that the
library with that soname must never be unloaded even after your plugin
GUI library has been unloaded.
e.g. $ lv2soname '<http://my.gui>'
If the script for some reason can't determine the soname it will
instead generate the RDF needed to tell the host to never unload the
GUI library at all.
However pretty much the same thing can be done by linking the plugin
GUI using the -z nodelete linker option, which will keep the GUI
library loaded even after the host runs dlclose(), requiring no extra
support from the host. So lv2soname is deprecated and will be removed
in the next major version release.
