arcv - convert archives to new format
arcv file ...
Arcv converts archive files (see ar(1), ar(5)) from 32v and Third Berkeley editions to a new portable format. The conversion is done in
place, and the command refuses to alter a file not in old archive format.
Old archives are marked with a magic number of 0177545 at the start; new archives have a first line ``!<arch>''.

RANLIB(5) File Formats Manual RANLIB(5)NAME
ranlib - archive (library) table-of-contents format
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.
