ranlib - Converts archives to random libraries
ranlib [-t] archive...
The ranlib command converts each archive file archive to a
format that enables fast, random access by the linker.
Touches the named archives without modifying them.
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about an out-of-date symbol table.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).
To convert the archive file genlib.a, enter: ranlib genlib.a
Commands: ar(1), lorder(1), make(1)
