A linking-node interface is used for shader linking.
Note This interface is part of the HLSL shader linking technology that you can use on all Direct3D 11 platforms to create precompiled HLSL functions, package them into libraries, and link them into full shaders at run time.
The ID3D11LinkingNode interface inherits from the IUnknown interface.
The ID3D11LinkingNode interface has these methods.
Note ID3D11LinkingNode requires the D3dcompiler_47.dll or a later version of the DLL.
