4 Linker Plugins

The linker can use dynamically loaded plugins to modify its behavior. For example, the link-time optimization feature that some compilers support is implemented with a linker plugin.

Currently there is only one plugin shipped by default, but more may be added here later.

Plugins are enabled via the use of the -plugin name command line option. See Options.
