Note: highly non-portable.

comment g++: In what order should static and dynamic libraries be linked?
Sorry, but the first part is just plain wrong! Static libraries are linked in, at least in the sense that symbol resolution is done as they are bundled together. And thus the order is of paramount importance!

In the past? Certainly still is!

comment Where did King Arthur get his sword, Excalibur?
There's this Riothamus character who lived in Britain & Brittany/northern Gaul, who is sometimes suggested to be the real-life basis for the Arthur of legend, interacting with the "Britons" of Britain & Brittany, Anglo-Saxons, Franks, & Visigoths. The fascinating thing is that by the time of the Norman invasions of England, a number of nobles from Brittany (especially the borderlands between Normandy and Brittany) fought as lieutenants of William, and claimed vast fiefdom and lordships upon the conquest of England, displacing native Anglo-Saxon nobles and achieving some ancestral revenge!

comment Where did King Arthur get his sword, Excalibur?
I was going to say something similar to @Alan. Indeed, "England" is a name too closely tied with the Anglo-Saxons, it being an Anglo-Saxon word originally something like "Angleland". Interesting, not only does Arthur belong to the world of late/post-Roman and pre/early-Anglo-Saxon Britain (depending on which 'histories' you believe), but there is a strong association with Brittany. Indeed, since many of the Celtic Britons fled there upon and during the early Anglo-Saxon invasions, there was a strong connection between the isles and that region of Gaul, for a time.
