MirOS Manual: ranlib(1)


RANLIB(1)             GNU Development Tools             RANLIB(1)

NAME

     ranlib - generate index to archive.

SYNOPSIS

     ranlib [-vV] archive

DESCRIPTION

     ranlib generates an index to the contents of an archive and
     stores it in the archive.  The index lists each symbol
     defined by a member of an archive that is a relocatable
     object file.

     You may use nm -s or nm --print-armap to list this index.

     An archive with such an index speeds up linking to the
     library and allows routines in the library to call each
     other without regard to their placement in the archive.

     The GNU ranlib program is another form of GNU ar; running
     ranlib is completely equivalent to executing ar -s.
