Linux Assemblycollection of fast libraries

LinAsm Information


LinAsm is the package of very fast assembly written libraries, which provide functions, algorithms and abstract data types for different kind of tasks. All of them are reenterable and do not modify any global variables. They are grouped by categories in depending of the tasks they cover.

All functions are written on pure flat assembler language, and export function names to link with C/C++ programs. Function names follow GCC name standard. If your programming language understands "C" names syntax, and can link shared libraries (*.so), then you may use these libraries inside your projects are written in the language you like.


LinAsm libraries can be easily installed on x86-64 Linux system. Just follow LinAsm installation procedure in the "Support" section to find how to do it.


To link the library to C/C++ program just add "-llinasm" to gcc options. It will link library functions from shared object file "" with your code. Be aware, that library, by default, is placed into the "/usr/local/lib", which can be changed in Makefile. So you may need to set up shell variable "LD_LIBRARY_PATH" to use that directory in LDD search pathes. To do it just type in your working shell "export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/usr/local/lib" or add appropriate string into shell startup files such as ".bashrc".

Another way to call library is to tell the linker where to find library file during compilation process. Just add "-Wl,-rpath=/usr/local/lib" to gcc options.
