Linux 2.6 - man page for ranlib (linux section 1)

RANLIB(1)			      GNU Development Tools				RANLIB(1)

NAME
       ranlib - generate index to archive.

SYNOPSIS
       ranlib [-vVt] 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.

       -t  Update the timestamp of the symbol map of an archive.

       @file
	   Read command-line options from file.  The options read are inserted in place of the
	   original @file option.  If file does not exist, or cannot be read, then the option
	   will be treated literally, and not removed.

	   Options in file are separated by whitespace.  A whitespace character may be included
	   in an option by surrounding the entire option in either single or double quotes.  Any
	   character (including a backslash) may be included by prefixing the character to be
	   included with a backslash.  The file may itself contain additional @file options; any
	   such options will be processed recursively.
