NAME
     ldd -- list dynamic object	dependencies

SYNOPSIS
     ldd [-v] [-f format] program ...

DESCRIPTION
     The ldd utility displays all shared objects that are needed to run	the
     given program or to load the given	shared object.	Contrary to nm(1), the
     list includes ``indirect''	dependencies that are the result of needed
     shared objects which themselves depend on yet other shared	objects.

     Zero, one or two -f options may be	given.	The argument is	a format
     string passed to rtld(1) and allows customization of ldd's	output.	 See
     rtld(1) for a list	of recognized conversion characters.

     The -v option displays an verbose listing of the dynamic linking headers
     encoded in	the executable.	 See the source	code and include files for the
     definitive	meaning	of all the fields.

SEE ALSO
     ld(1), nm(1), rtld(1)

HISTORY
     A ldd utility first appeared in SunOS 4.0,	it appeared in its current
     form in FreeBSD 1.1.

     The -v support is based on	code written by	John Polstra <jdp@polstra.com>
