TTLIB64.EXE is a library manager that deals with C++Builder 64-bit Windows object files and libraries:

  • The object files are ELF format with a .o extension.
  • The libraries are in GNU ar format with a .a extension.

TLIB64 also can manage OMF files, just like TLIB.EXE, its 32-bit Windows counterpart. In help topics that describe the use of TLIB, any steps or descriptions that pertain to TLIB.EXE can also pertain to TLIB64.EXE. For more information about using TLIB64, see TLIB.EXE, the Library Manager.

Run TLIB64 with the \A Switch on 64-bit Windows

To enable ELF format libraries with TLIB64, you must specify the /A option on the command line:


(write GNU AR format archive with ELF objs)

Command Line Help

   *           extract module without removing it
   -+ or +-    update module in library
   -* or *-    extract module and remove it

Set the default action for modules without a specified command:

   /d          delete module from library
   /e          extract module without removal
   /u          update module in library
   /x          extract module and remove it from library

   /L          write listfile to stdout
   /N          disable support of command syntax
   /O          enable support of command syntax
   /A          write GNU AR format archive with ELF objs
   /C          case-sensitive library
   /PSIZE      set the library page size to SIZE
   /0          purge comment records
   /8          output encoding is utf-8
