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
