find_libs - find pathnames of libraries


find_libs [ -Lpath ... ][ -lname ... ]
find_libs -Help
find_libs -VERSion


The find_libs program is used to find the actual pathname of a library specified on a
cc(1) command line. This allows cook(1) to know these dependencies.


The following options are understood.

Specify a path to search for libraries on. If more than one is specified, they
will be scanned in the order given before the standard /usr/lib and /lib places.
This is like the same argument to cc(1), and the usual find_libs option
abbreviation rules do not apply.

Name a library to be searched for. This is like the same argument to cc(1), and
the usual find_libs option abbreviation rules do not apply.

Give some information on how to use the find_libs command.

Tell the version of the find_libs command currently executing.

All other options will result in a diagnostic error.

All options may be abbreviated; the abbreviation is documented as the upper case letters,
all lower case letters and underscores (_) are optional. You must use consecutive
sequences of optional letters.

All options are case insensitive, you may type them in upper case or lower case or a
combination of both, case is not important.

For example: the arguments "-help", "-HEL" and "-h" are all interpreted to mean the -Help
option. The argument "-hlp" will not be understood, because consecutive optional
characters were not supplied.

Options and other command line arguments may be mixed arbitrarily on the command line.

The GNU long option names are understood. Since all option names for find_libs are long,
this means ignoring the extra leading '-'. The "--option=value" convention is also


The find_libs command will exit with a status of 1 on any error. The find_libs command
will only exit with a status of 0 if there are no errors.
