NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       ranlib - Converts archives to random libraries

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       ranlib [-t] archive...

       The ranlib command converts each archive file archive to a
       format that enables fast, random access by the linker.

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       Touches the named archives without modifying them.

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       If you specify the -t  option,  the  ranlib  command  only
       touches  the  archives  and does not modify them.  This is
       useful after copying an archive or using make with the  -t
       option  in  order to avoid having ld display an error message
 about an out-of-date symbol table.

       The ranlib command is included for compatibility only.  It
       is  a  shell  script  that invokes the ar command with the
       appropriate options (ar -qs for ranlib  with  no  options,
       and ar -h for ranlib -t).

EXAMPLES    [Toc]    [Back]

       To  convert  the archive file genlib.a, enter: ranlib genlib.a

SEE ALSO    [Toc]    [Back]

       Commands:  ar(1), lorder(1), make(1)
