Let us consider math.c file. We want to make it as a static library.
First we compile it with position independent flag on(-fPIC). This is needed for dynamic/static linking. $cc -fPIC -c math.c
Now make a archive or static lib with the object file. $ar rc libmath.a math.o
To use this static library in a application we need to do the following steps:
compile the application code (place math.h in include folder) $cc -c app.c -Iinclude -o app.o
Link with static library math.a $ld app.o libmath.a -o app
Run the application $./app
