llvm-ranlib - Generate index for LLVM archive


llvm-ranlib [–version] [-help] <archive-file>


The llvm-ranlib command is similar to the common Unix utility, ranlib. It adds or updates the symbol table in an LLVM archive file. Note that using the llvm-ar modifier s is usually more efficient than running llvm-ranlib which is only provided only for completness and compatibility. Unlike other implementations of ranlib, llvm-ranlib indexes LLVM bitcode files, not native object modules. You can list the contents of the symbol table with the llvm-nm -s command.



Specifies the archive-file to which the symbol table is added or updated.
