SYNOPSIS

al [option] [source-files]

DESCRIPTION

AL is the Mono assembly linkder.

This linker is used to put together assemblies from a collection of modules (.netmodule files), assembly manifest files and resources.

Do not confuse this with the monolinker, which is a tool to reduce the size of assemblies based on the code used.

Use al for processing 1.0 assemblies, use al2 to process 2.0 assemblies.

OPTIONS

@<filename>
  Read response file for more options.
-algid:<id>
  Algorithm used to hash files. The <id> must be specified in hexadecimal.
-base:<addr> | -baseaddress:<addr>
  Base address for the library. THIS FEATURE ISN’T IMPLEMENTED.
-bugreport:<filename>
  Create a ’Bug Report’ file. THIS FEATURE ISN’T IMPLEMENTED.
-comp:<text> | -company:<text>
  This inserts the company name into the assembly metadata. This is equivalent to adding the [AssemblyCompany ("<text>")] attribute into C# source code.
-config:<text> | -configuration:<text>
  This inserts the configuration string into the assembly metadata. This is equivalent to adding the [AssemblyConfiguration ("<text>")] attribute into C# source code.

  This inserts the supported culture into the assembly metadata. This is equivalent to adding the [AssemblyCulture ("<text>")] attribute into C# source code.
-delay | -delay+ | -delaysign | -delaysign+
  The generated assembly will be delay signed. This is equivalent to adding the [AssemblyDelaySignAttribute (true)] attribute into C# source code.
-delay- | -delaysign-
  The generated assembly will be fully signed (i.e. not delay signed). This is the default option when signing (-keyfile or -keyname).
-descr:<text> | -description:<text>
  This inserts a description of the assembly into the assembly metadata. This is equivalent to adding the [AssemblyDescription ("<text>")] attribute into C# source code.

-fullpaths
  Display files using fully-qualified filenames.
-keyf:<filename> | -keyfile:<filename>
  Strongname (sign) the output assembly using the key pair present in the specified strong name key file (snk). A full key pair is required unless the delay signing option is also specified (-delay+). This is equivalent to adding the [AssemblyKeyFile ("<text>")] attribute into C# source code.
-keyn:<text> | -keyname:<text>
  Strongname (sign) the output assembly using the key pair present in the specified container. Delay signing isn’t supported when using key containers. This is equivalent to adding the [AssemblyKeyName ("<text>")] attribute into C# source code.

-t[arget]:<target> | -target=<target>
  Valid <target>s are: lib | library to create a library (.dll), exe to create a console executable (.exe), and win | winexe to create a Windows executable (.exe).
-template:<filename>
