 NAME
      libcadmin - libc administration command

 SYNOPSIS
      /usr/sbin/libcadmin

 DESCRIPTION
      The libcadmin command is used to perform administrative functions for
      libc.  Currently the only function that the command performs is to
      replace the shared 32-bit PA-RISC2.0 library in /usr/lib/libc.2 with
      the shared 32-bit PA-RISC1.1 version of that library.

      There are no required arguments or options used with this command.
      The /usr/lib/libc.a archive library and the libc.sl symbolic link are
      unaffected by the libcadmin command.

      During the system installation process, the shared 32-bit PA-RISC1.1
      library is copied into /usr/lib/pa11_32.	This library is the same as
      the PA-RISC2.0 library except that it was built with different
      compiler options. The PA-RISC2.0 library provides much higher
      performance than the PA-RISC1.1 library. However, if the system
      administrator desires to have the PA-RISC1.1 library installed
      instead, libcadmin allows the system administrator to accomplish this
      task.  When libcadmin is executed, the PA-RISC2.0 library is stored in
      /usr/lib/pa20_32 and the PA-RISC1.1 library is copied into
      /usr/lib/libc.2.

      It is recommended that the system be re-booted after executing the
      libcadmin command so that applications which are linked shared against
      libc will use the shared 32-bit PA-RISC1.1 version of that library.

      Once the command is executed, the only way to put the PA-RISC2.0
      library back in place is to re-install the operating system.

      The libcadmin command can only be executed by a user with superuser
      privileges.

 ERRORS
      Multiple executions of the command will result in an error message
      indicating the PA-RISC1.1 library is already installed.

      Executing this command on a PA-RISC1.1 machine will result in an error
      message indicating the PA-RISC1.1 library is already installed.

 RETURN VALUES
      Upon successful completion, libcadmin returns zero (0). Otherwise a
      one (1) is returned.
