 ranlib(1)                                                         ranlib(1)

 NAME    [Toc]    [Back]
      ranlib - regenerate archive symbol table

 SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]
      ranlib archive ...

 DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]
      ranlib regenerates the symbol tables of the specified archives. It is
      equivalent to executing ar qs archive on each of the archives.  After
      using the z modifier of ar, the symbol table of an archive must be
      regenerated before it can be used.

    Environment Variables
      The following internationalization variables affect the execution of

      LANG Determines the locale category for native language, local customs
           and coded character set in the absence of LC_ALL and other LC_*
           environment variables.  If LANG is not specified or is set to the
           empty string, a default of C (see lang(5)) is used instead of

      LC_ALL    [Toc]    [Back]
           Determines the values for all locale categories and has
           precedence over LANG and other LC_* environment variables.

      LC_CTYPE    [Toc]    [Back]
           Determines the locale category for character handling functions.

      LC_MESSAGES    [Toc]    [Back]
           Determines the locale that should be used to affect the format
           and contents of diagnostic messages written to standard error.

      LC_NUMERIC    [Toc]    [Back]
           Determines the locale category for numeric formatting.

      LC_TIME    [Toc]    [Back]
           Determines the format and contents of date and time formatting.

      NLSPATH    [Toc]    [Back]
           Determines the location of message catalogues for the processing
           of LC_MESSAGES.

      If any internationalization variable contains an invalid setting,
      ranlib behaves as if all internationalization variables are set to C.
      See environ(5).

      In addition, the following environment variable affects ranlib:
