Subject: static linking and dlopen


I have a strong preference towards static linking these days because the
running program use so much less memory.

When I link a binary statically and that binary then use dlopen, would that
work 100% ?

What would open if the shared object that was dlopened want's to call
functions in other shared libraries ?
I understand that when using dynamic linking those libraries would just get
loaded, but I am not sure what would happen with static linking.
