SYNOPSIS

ldd [OPTION]... FILE...

DESCRIPTION

ldd prints the shared libraries required by each program or shared library specified on the command line.

OPTIONS

--version
  Print the version number of ldd.
-v --verbose
  Print all information, including e.g. symbol versioning information.
-d --data-relocs
  Perform relocations and report any missing objects (ELF only).
-r --function-relocs
  Perform relocations for both data objects and functions, and report any missing objects or functions (ELF only).
-u --unused Print unused direct dependencies.
--help Usage information.

BUGS

ldd does not work on a.out shared libraries.

ldd does not work with some extremely old a.out programs which were built before ldd support was added to the compiler releases. If you use ldd on one of these programs, the program will attempt to run with argc = 0 and the results will be unpredictable.
