       ranlib - generate index to archive.

       ranlib [-vV] archive

       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

       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.
