LDD(1)                     Linux Programmer's Manual                    LDD(1)

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.
