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.

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

SEE ALSO
       ar(1), nm(1), and the Info entries for binutils.
