    Creating a lib (HELP)

    Hi Everyone...
    Can someone tell me how to create a lib please?

    I have a file filled with fuctions (of course there is not a main)!!!

    how can i make a ".so" out of this and how can i use the ".so", or how should i?

    I'm a C experienced student, but sometimes, it's just one of those days!!!

    There are libraries and there are libraries.

    ar is used to make standard (static link) libraries. Those have .a extensions on Unix/Linux. Creating a dynamic (or shared) library (a .so file) is a different kettle of fish.

    Rather than trying to explain it all to you from memory, I did a Google search, and came up with:
    this bit on shared libraries and this bit on static libraries.

    Knock yourself out.
    Insert obnoxious but pithy remark here
