ranlib(5) [bsd man page]

RANLIB(5)							File Formats Manual							 RANLIB(5)

NAME
ranlib - archive (library) table-of-contents format SYNOPSIS
#include <ranlib.h> DESCRIPTION
The archive table-of-contents command ranlib creates a table of contents for archives, containing object files, to be used by the link-edi- tor ld(1). It operates on archives created with the utility ar(1). The Ranlib function prepends a new file to the archive which has three separate parts. The first part is a standard archive header, which has a special name field, "__.SYMDEF". The second part is a ``long'' followed by a list of ranlib structures. The long is the size, in bytes, of the list of ranlib structures. Each of the ranlib structures consists of a zero based offset into the next section (a string table of symbols) and an offset from the beginning of the archive to the start of the archive file which defines the symbol. The actual number of ranlib structures is this number divided by the size of an individual ranlib structure. The third part is a ``long'' followed by a string table. The long is the size, in bytes of the string table. SEE ALSO

NAME
ranlib -- archive (library) table-of-contents format SYNOPSIS
#include <mach-o/ranlib.h> DESCRIPTION
The archive table-of-contents command ranlib creates a table of contents for archives, containing object files, to be used by the link-editor ld(1). It operates on archives created with the utility ar(1). The Ranlib function prepends a new file to the archive which has three separate parts. The first part is a standard archive header, which has a special name field, "__.SYMDEF" or "__.SYMDEF SORTED". If the archive does not have multiple members that define symbol then "__.SYMDEF SORTED" should be used and the table of contents should be sorted by name. The second part is a ``long'' followed by a list of ranlib structures. The long is the size, in bytes, of the list of ranlib structures. Each of the ranlib structures consists of a zero based offset into the next section (a string table of symbols) and an offset from the begin- ning of the archive to the start of the archive file which defines the symbol. The actual number of ranlib structures is this number divided by the size of an individual ranlib structure. The third part is a ``long'' followed by a string table. The long is the size, in bytes of the string table. SEE ALSO
