I build xerces to get a shared library. But in the lib folder
there are 3 files [ libxerces-c.so,libxerces-c.so.27.0,
libxerces-c.so.27] of which 2 are shortcuts. Why is this kind of a
file system required.
I googled and got 2 references
But they only gave info about what the 3 files are and not about why 3
files are required for a shared library. Why this kind of an
architecture is needed ? Why can't we have a single file as in case of
a static library? Could any one tell why or get me some useful
references on the topic?
Thanks in advance
