GNU linker (or GNU ld) is the GNU Project's implementation of the Unix command ld. GNU ld runs the linker, which creates an executable file (or a library) from object files created during compilation of a software project. It is part of the GNU Binary Utilities (binutils).

The name of the command originated as an abbreviation for "load".

GNU linker is free software, distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License.
