Hi Dave,

That's not something I've encountered before. So it must be a C++ thing?

That's a weird tick I've developed, thanks for pointing it out. Without the b=
enefit of an editor, it's easy to let unnecessary verbiage like that sneak i=
n. Thanks for the reminder, I'll go through and cut where I can.

Patches welcome, as always!

Note that the the FSF requires copyright assignments on file before I can pu=
sh any non-trivial changes. Please contact me off-list if you'd like to get t=
he process started - it takes a few weeks, so is worth doing in case you wan=
t to send any patches in future, even if this "in order object files" propos=
al doesn't go through for some reason.

Cheers,

Our code base loads .o files in a specified order so that initialization =
code is called in the desired order.

While looking for this feature in Libtool, I noted that the =
documentation uses =93in order to=94 many times. Those usages can be =
streamlined by removing =93in order=94 and just going with =93to=94.

If you are interested in putting an ordering feature into Libtool, I bet =
we could give you our code.

Thanks=
