LDCONFIG(8)                 System Manager's Manual                LDCONFIG(8)



NAME
       ldconfig - link-editor configuration

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/etc/ldconfig [ directory  ... ]

DESCRIPTION
       ldconfig  is  used  to  configure a performance-enhancing cache for the
       run-time link-editor, ld.so.  It is run from /etc/rc.local and periodi-
       cally  via  cron  to  avoid linking with stale libraries.  It should be
       also be run manually when a new shared object (e.g., a shared  library)
       is installed on the system.

       When  invoked with no arguments, a default set of directories are built
       into the cache - these are the directories searched by default  by  the
       link  editors.   Additional directories may be specified on the command
       line.

FILES
       /etc/ld.so.cache    holds the cached data.
