Okay, this is one simple step of one of my comp sci classes that i cannot figure out. So i wrote this library file called tman.c and used gcc to make it tman.o now i have to use the ar command to make it into a library file called libtman.a I have no clue how to use the ar command and the man pages are never helpful to me. Can someone explain how to make this a libtman.a? On top of that, I'm kind of new to C but do you use the libtman.a as u would a normal header file? Code: #include "libtman.a" will that suffice? cliff: gotta make a file.o to a file.a using ar. then must use file.a to program. howto?
