INSTALL_NAME_TOOL(1)					      General Commands Manual					      INSTALL_NAME_TOOL(1)

NAME
install_name_tool - change dynamic shared library install names SYNOPSIS
install_name_tool [-change old new ] ... [-rpath old new ] ... [-add_rpath new ] ... [-delete_rpath new ] ... [-id name] file DESCRIPTION
Install_name_tool changes the dynamic shared library install names and or adds, changes or deletes the rpaths recorded in a Mach-O binary. For this tool to work when the install names or rpaths are larger the binary should be built with the ld(1) -headerpad_max_install_names option. -change old new Changes the dependent shared library install name old to new in the specified Mach-O binary. More than one of these options can be specified. If the Mach-O binary does not contain the old install name in a specified -change option the option is ignored. -id name Changes the shared library identification name of a dynamic shared library to name. If the Mach-O binary is not a dynamic shared library and the -id option is specified it is ignored. -rpath old new Changes the rpath path name old to new in the specified Mach-O binary. More than one of these options can be specified. If the Mach-O binary does not contain the old rpath path name in a specified -rpath it is an error. -add_rpath new Adds the rpath path name new in the specified Mach-O binary. More than one of these options can be specified. If the Mach-O binary already contains the new rpath path name specified in -add_rpath it is an error. -delete_rpath old deletes the rpath path name old in the specified Mach-O binary. More than one of these options can be specified. If the Mach-O binary does not contains the old rpath path name specified in -delete_rpath it is an error. SEE ALSO

REDO_PREBINDING(1)					      General Commands Manual						REDO_PREBINDING(1)

NAME
redo_prebinding - redo the prebinding of an executable or dynamic library SYNOPSIS
redo_prebinding [-c | -p | -d] [-i] [-z] [-u] [-r rootdir] [-e executable_path] [-seg_addr_table table_file_name] [-seg_addr_table_filename pathname] [-seg1addr address] [-o output_file] [-s] input_file DESCRIPTION
Redo_prebinding is used to redo the prebinding of an executable or dynamic library when one of the dependent dynamic libraries changes. The input file, executable or dynamic library, must have initially been prebound for this program to redo the prebinding. Also all depended libraries must have their prebinding up to date. So when redoing the prebinding for libraries they must be done in dependency order. Also when building executables or dynamic libraries that are to be prebound (with the -prebind options to ld(1) or libtool(1)) the dependent libraries must have their prebinding up to date or the result will not be prebound. The options allow for different types of checking for use in shell scripts. Only one of -c, -p or -d can be used at a time. If redo_pre- binding redoes the prebinding on an input file it will run /usr/bin/objcunique if it exists on the result. OPTIONS
-c only check if the file needs to have it's prebinding redone and return status. A 0 exit means the file's prebinding is up to date, 1 means it needs to be redone and 2 means it could not be checked for reasons like a dependent library is missing (an error message is printed in these cases). -p check only for prebound files and return status. An exit status of 1 means the file is a Mach-O that could have been prebound and is not otherwise the exit status is 0. -d check only for dynamic shared library files and return status. An exit status of 0 means the file is a dynamic shared library, 1 means the file is not, 2 means there is some mix in the architectures. -i ignore non-prebound files (useful when running on all types of files). -z zero out the prebind check sum in the output if it has one. -u unprebind, rather than reprebind (-c, -p, -d, -e ignored). Resets or removes prebinding-specific information from the input file. As unprebinding is intended to produce a canonical Mach-O binary, bundles and non-prebound executables and dylibs are acceptable as input. For these files, the unprebind operation will zero library time stamps and version numbers and zero entries in the two- level hints table. -e executable_path replace any dependent library's "@executable_path" prefix with the executable_path argument. -seg_addr_table table_file_name The -seg_addr_table option is used when the input a dynamic library and if specified the table entry for the install_name of the dynamic library is used for checking and the address to relocate the library to as it prefered address. -seg_addr_table_filename pathname Use pathname instead of the install name of the library for matching an entry in the segment address table. -seg1addr address Move the input library to base address address. This option does not apply when -u, -seg_addr_table or -seg_addr_table_filename are specified. -r rootdir prepend the rootdir argument to all dependent libraries. -o output_file write the updated file into output_file rather than back into the input file. -s write the updated file to standard output DIAGNOSTICS
With no -c, -p or -d an exit status of 0 means success and 2 means it could not be done for reasons like a dependent library is missing (an error message is printed in these cases). And exit of 3 is for the specific case when the dependent libraries are out of date with respect to each other. Apple Computer, Inc. March 29, 2004 REDO_PREBINDING(1)
