RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for ranlib (redhat section 1)

RANLIB(1)			      GNU Development Tools				RANLIB(1)

NAME
       ranlib - generate index to archive.

SYNOPSIS
       ranlib [-vV] 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.

SEE ALSO
       ar(1), nm(1), and the Info entries for binutils.
