NAME
ranlib - convert archives to random libraries
SYNOPSIS
ranlib archive
DESCRIPTION
The ranlib utility was used in SunOS 4.x to add a table of contents to archive libraries, which converted each archive to a form that could be linked more rapidly. This is no longer needed, as the ar(1) command automati- cally provides all the functionality ranlib used to provide. This script is provided as a convenience for software developers who need to maintain Makefiles that are por- table across a variety of operating systems.
EXIT STATUS
ranlib has exit status 0.
