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.
