about ldd command !


Friends ,

I read the manual of the 'ldd' command in Linux , using the ldd command I got the below output :

1)
bash-3.00$ ldd libclntsh.so
libclntsh.so needs:
/usr/lib/libpthreads.a(shr_xpg5_64.o)
/usr/lib/libc.a(shr_64.o)
/usr/lib/libdl.a(shr_64.o)
/usr/lib/libodm.a(shr_64.o)
/usr/lib/libperfstat.a(shr_64.o)
/unix
/usr/lib/libcrypt.a(shr_64.o)
/usr/lib/libcfg.a(shr_64.o)
/usr/lib/libcorcfg.a(shr_64.o)
/usr/lib/liblvm.a(shr_64.o)
/usr/lib/libsrc.a(shr_64.o



2)
bash-3.00$ ldd libclntsh.so
File is an archive

Here , anybody plz tell me , what are the meaning of the above two outputs ?

Will probably depend where you are using the ldd command.
Linux ? Please specify name and version.
http://catb.org/esr/faqs/smart-questions.html

Could 'libclntsh.so' be a 64 bit library ?
( Usually libclntsh.so is a link to libclntsh.so.XX,
e.g. libclntsh.so.8.0. ?
( libclntsh.so.8.0 is an Oracle file, I guess.))

""File is an archive"" : Renamed from a different file ?
Please try the command : file libclntsh.so
.. and show the reply.

If you can't figure out why ldd is giving you that output try reading it with a text editor and see if you can follow the logic.
