ranlib


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 operating systems.

EXIT STATUS
     ranlib has exit status 0.
