        ranlib - generate index to archive.


        ranlib [-vV] archive


        ranlib  generates  an index to the contents of an archive and stores it
        in the archive.  The index lists each symbol defined by a member of  an
        archive that is a relocatable object file.
        You may use nm -s or nm --print-armap to list this index.
        An  archive  with  such  an  index speeds up linking to the library and
        allows routines in the library to call each  other  without  regard  to
        their placement in the archive.
        The  GNU  ranlib  program  is another form of GNU ar; running ranlib is
        completely equivalent to executing ar -s.


            Show the version number of ranlib.
