ranlib(1)                        User Commands                       ranlib(1)



NAME
       ranlib - convert archives to random libraries

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/ccs/bin/ranlib archive

DESCRIPTION
       The  ranlib utility was used in SunOS 4.x to add a table of contents to
       archive libraries, which converted each archive to a form that could be
       linked  more  rapidly.  This  is no longer needed, as the ar(1) command
       automatically provides all the functionality ranlib used to provide.

       This script is provided as a convenience for  software  developers  who
       need  to maintain Makefiles that are portable across a variety of oper-
       ating systems.

EXIT STATUS
       ranlib has exit status 0.
