       libtool - Provide generalized library-building support services.

       libtool [OPTION]...  [MODE-ARG]...

       The  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.

       libtool 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.

	      Dont create, modify, or delete any files, just show  what  com
	      mands would be executed by libtool.

	      Display  basic  configuration  options.  This provides a way for
	      packages to determine whether shared or static libraries will be

	      Same as --mode=finish.

       --help Display  a  help message and exit.  If --mode=MODE is specified,
	      then detailed help for MODE is displayed.

	      Use MODE as the operation mode.  By default, the operation  mode
	      is inferred from the MODE-ARGS.

	      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.

	      Dont print informational messages.

	      Use configuration variables from tag TAG

	      Print version information.

       The MODE-ARGS are a variable number  of	arguments,  depending  on  the
       selected  operation  mode.  In general, each MODE-ARG is interpreted by
       programs libtool invokes, rather than libtool itself.

       libtoolize(1), automake(1)
       libtool, libtoolize and automake are  fully  documented	via  the
       Info system.

       This  manual page was created by Ossama Othman .  It
       is based on the "Invoking Libtool" menu entry in the libtool  TEXINFO
       documentation,  and  the output from the --help option.	It was updated
       for Libtool 1.5 by Scott James Remnant .
