       ranlib - convert archives to random libraries

       ranlib archive

       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 automatically 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 portable across a variety of operating systems.

       ranlib has exit status 0.
