=head1 NAME

llvm-ranlib - Generate index for LLVM archive


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


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

=head1 OPTIONS


=item F<archive-file>

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

=item F<--version>

Print the version of B<llvm-ranlib> and exit without building a symbol table.

=item F<-help>

Print usage help for B<llvm-ranlib> and exit without building a symbol table.



If B<llvm-ranlib> succeeds, it will exit with 0.  If an error occurs, a non-zero
exit code will be returned.
