NAMElibtool - Provide generalized library-building support services.
SYNOPSISlibtool [OPTION]... [MODE-ARG]...
DESCRIPTIONThe `libtool' program provides a standard way to generate both static and shared libraries. It hides the complexities of platform-specific library generation behind an interface that is the same across all platforms supported by libtool.
OPTIONSlibtool accepts the following options:
- Display libtool configuration variables and exit.
- Dump a trace of shell script execution to standard output. This produces a lot of output, so you may wish to pipe it to `less' (or `more') or redirect to a file.
- Don't create, modify, or delete any files, just show what commands would be executed by `libtool'.
- Display basic configuration options. This provides a way for packages to determine whether shared or static libraries will be built.
- Same as --mode=finish.
- Display a help message and exit. If --mode=MODE is specified, then detailed help for MODE is displayed.
as the operation mode. By default, the operation mode is inferred
If MODE is specified, it must be one of the following:
- clean Remove files from the build directory
- compile Compile a source file into a `libtool' object.
- execute Automatically set the library path, then run a program.
- finish Complete the installation of libtool libraries.
- install Install libraries or executables.
- link Create a library or an executable.
- uninstall Remove libraries from an installed directory.
- Same as `--silent'.
- Don't print informational messages.
- Use configuration variables from tag TAG
- Print version information.
