NAME
       ldd - print shared library dependencies

SYNOPSIS
       ldd [OPTION]... FILE...

DESCRIPTION
       ldd  prints  the	 shared	 libraries  required by	each program or	shared
       library specified on the	command	line.

OPTIONS
       --version
	      Print the	version	number of ldd.

       -v --verbose
	      Print all	information, including,	for example, symbol versioning
	      information.

       -u --unused
	      Print unused direct dependencies.	 (Since	glibc 2.3.4.)

       -d --data-relocs
	      Perform relocations and report any missing objects (ELF only).

       -r --function-relocs
	      Perform  relocations  for	 both  data objects and	functions, and
	      report any missing objects or functions (ELF only).

       --help Usage information.

NOTES
       The standard version of ldd comes with  glibc2.	 Libc5	came  with  an
       older version, still present on some systems.  The long options are not
       supported by the	libc5 version.	On the other hand, the glibc2  version
       does not	support	-V and only has	the equivalent --version.

       The  libc5 version of this program will use the name of a library given
       on the command line as-is when it contains a '/'; otherwise it searches
       for  the	 library  in  the  standard  locations.	 To run	it on a	shared
       library in the current directory, prefix	the name with "./".

BUGS
       ldd does	not work on a.out shared libraries.

       ldd does	not work with some extremely old  a.out	 programs  which  were
       built  before  ldd  support was added to	the compiler releases.	If you
       use ldd on one of these programs, the program will attempt to run  with
       argc = 0	and the	results	will be	unpredictable.
