 NAME
      ranlib - regenerate archive symbol table

 SYNOPSIS
      ranlib archive ...

 DESCRIPTION
      ranlib regenerates the symbol tables of the specified archives. It is
      equivalent to executing ar qs archive on each of the archives.  After
      using the z modifier of ar, the symbol table of an archive must be
      regenerated before it can be used.

 EXTERNAL INFLUENCES
    Environment Variables
      The following internationalization variables affect the execution of
      ranlib:

      LANG Determines the locale category for native language, local customs
	   and coded character set in the absence of LC_ALL and other LC_*
	   environment variables.  If LANG is not specified or is set to the
	   empty string, a default of C (see lang(5)) is used instead of
	   LANG.

      LC_ALL
	   Determines the values for all locale categories and has
	   precedence over LANG and other LC_* environment variables.

      LC_CTYPE
	   Determines the locale category for character handling functions.

      LC_MESSAGES
	   Determines the locale that should be used to affect the format
	   and contents of diagnostic messages written to standard error.

      LC_NUMERIC
	   Determines the locale category for numeric formatting.

      LC_TIME
	   Determines the format and contents of date and time formatting.

      NLSPATH
	   Determines the location of message catalogues for the processing
	   of LC_MESSAGES.

      If any internationalization variable contains an invalid setting,
      ranlib behaves as if all internationalization variables are set to C.
      See environ(5).

      In addition, the following environment variable affects ranlib:
