Using an archive library

Filed under: c, unix — rcjp @ 1:19 pm

main program that calls into the archive test1.c

#include <stdio.h>

int main()
    printf("inside main program\n");
    printf("back inside main program\n");

the code in the archive mylib1.c

#include <stdio.h>

int mytest()
    printf("inside c lib !!!\n");
    return 2;

build with the script

cc -c mylib1.c
ar -cvq mylib1.a mylib1.o
# create a symbol table to link with
ranlib mylib1.a
# now use the lib
cc test1.c mylib1.a -o test1
