DESCRIPTIONThis manual page documents briefly the lv2soname command. This manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the original program does not have a manual page.
lv2soname script can be used in your build system to translate a linker option (e.g. -lgtkmm2.4) into the soname (e.g. libgtkmm-2.4.so.1) for the shared library that ld will link to when given that command line option. It will generate the RDF triples needed to tell hosts that the library with that soname must never be unloaded even after your plugin GUI library has been unloaded.
If the script for some reason can't determine the soname it will instead generate the RDF needed to tell the host to never unload the GUI library at all.
However pretty much the same thing can be done by linking the plugin GUI using the -z nodelete linker option, which will keep the GUI library loaded even after the host runs dlclose(), requiring no extra support from the host. So lv2soname is deprecated and will be removed in the next major version release.
