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.

       @file
	   Read command-line options from file.	 The options read are inserted
	   in  place of the original @file option.  If file does not exist, or
	   cannot be read, then the option will be treated literally, and  not
	   removed.

	   Options  in file are separated by whitespace.  A whitespace charac-
	   ter may be included in an option by surrounding the	entire	option
	   in  either  single  or  double  quotes.  Any character (including a
	   backslash) may  be  included	 by  prefixing	the  character	to  be
	   included  with a backslash.	The file may itself contain additional
	   @file options; any such options will be processed recursively.
