NAME

       al, al2 - Mono Assembly Linker

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.

       -copy:<text> | -copyright:<text>
              This inserts the copyright message into the assembly metadata.  This is  equivalent
              to adding the [AssemblyCopyright ("<text>")] attribute into C# source code.

       -c:<text> | -culture:<text>
              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.

       -e:<filename> | -evidence:<filename>
              This embed into the assembly the specified file as assembly security evidences.

       -fileversion:<version>
              Optional Win32 version. This overrides the normal assembly version.

       -flags:<flags>
              Assembly flags. The <flags> must be specified in hexadecimal.

       -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.

       -main:<method>
              Specifies the method name of the assembly entry point.

       -nologo
              Suppress the startup banner and copyright message.

       -out:<filename>
              Output file name for the assembly manifest.

       -prod:<text> | product:<text>
              This inserts the product name into the assembly metadata.  This  is  equivalent  to
              adding the [AssemblyProduct ("<text>")] attribute into C# source code.

       -productv[ersion]:<text>
              This inserts the product version into the assembly metadata.  This is equivalent to
              adding the [AssemblyInformationalVersion ("<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>
              Specifies an assembly to get default options from.

       -title:<text>
              This  inserts  an assembly title into the assembly metadata.  This is equivalent to
              adding the [AssemblyTitle ("<text>")] attribute into C# source code.

       -trade:<text> | -trademark:<text>
              This inserts a trademark message into the assembly metadata.  This is equivalent to
              adding the [AssemblyTrademark ("<text>")] attribute into C# source code.

       -v:<version> | -version:<version>
              This  inserts  the  assembly  version  into the assembly metadata. You can use * to
              auto-generate remaining numbers.  This is equivalent to adding the [AssemblyVersion
              ("<text>")] attribute into C# source code.

       -win32icon:<filename>
              Use this icon for the output.

       -win32res:<filename>
              Specifies the Win32 resource file.
