NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       libtool - Provide generalized library-building support services.

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       libtool [OPTION]...  [MODE-ARG]...

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  `libtool'  program provides a standard way to generate both static
       and shared libraries.  It hides the complexities  of  platform-specific
       library	generation  behind  an	interface  that is the same across all
       platforms supported by libtool.

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       libtool accepts the following options:

	      Display libtool configuration variables and exit.

	      Dump a trace of shell script execution to standard output.  This
	      produces	a  lot of output, so you may wish to pipe it to `less'
	      (or `more') or redirect to a file.

	      Don't create, modify, or delete any files, just show  what  commands
 would be executed by `libtool'.

	      Display  basic  configuration  options.  This provides a way for
	      packages to determine whether shared or static libraries will be

	      Same as --mode=finish.

       --help Display  a  help message and exit.  If --mode=MODE is specified,
	      then detailed help for MODE is displayed.

	      Use MODE as the operation mode.  By default, the operation  mode
	      is inferred from the MODE-ARGS.

	      If MODE is specified, it must be one of the following:

	      clean Remove files from the build directory

	      compile Compile a source file into a `libtool' object.

	      execute  Automatically set the library path, then run a program.

	      finish Complete the installation of libtool libraries.

	      install Install libraries or executables.

	      link Create a library or an executable.

	      uninstall Remove libraries from an installed directory.

	      Same as `--silent'.

	      Don't print informational messages.

	      Print version information.

       The MODE-ARGS are a variable number  of	arguments,  depending  on  the
       selected  operation  mode.  In general, each MODE-ARG is interpreted by
       programs libtool invokes, rather than libtool itself.

SEE ALSO    [Toc]    [Back]

       libtoolize(1), automake(1)
       `libtool', `libtoolize' and `automake' are  fully  documented  via  the
       Info system.

AUTHOR    [Toc]    [Back]

       This  manual page was created by Ossama Othman <ossama@debian.org>.  It
       is based on the "Invoking Libtool" menu entry in the `libtool'  TEXINFO
       documentation, and the output from the --help option.
