RANLIB(1)                    GNU Development Tools                   RANLIB(1)



NAME
       ranlib - generate index to archive.

SYNOPSIS
       ranlib [-vVt] 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.

OPTIONS
       -v
       -V
       --version
           Show the version number of ranlib.

       -t  Update the timestamp of the symbol map of an archive.

       @file
           Read command-line options from file.  The options read are inserted in place of the original @file option.
           If file does not exist, or cannot be read, then the option will be treated literally, and not removed.

           Options in file are separated by whitespace.  A whitespace character may be included in an option by
           surrounding the entire option in either single or double quotes.  Any character (including a backslash) may
           be included by prefixing the character to be included with a backslash.  The file may itself contain
           additional @file options; any such options will be processed recursively.
