GNU/Linux Ubuntu 20.10 Installing Libtool – Quick-Start Guide

Hi! The Tutorial Shows You Step-by-step How to Install Libtool in Ubuntu 20.10 Groovy GNU/Linux.

And GNU Libtool is a generic Library support Script that hides the complexity of using shared Libraries behind a consistent, portable Interface.

To use Libtool, add the new generic Library building Commands to your Makefile, Makefile.in, or Makefile.am. See the Documentation for details>.

About Libtool Easiness

The main difficulty is that different Vendors have different views of what Libraries are, and none of the Packages that were examined seemed to be confident enough to settle on a single Paradigm that just works.

Ideally, libtool would be a Standard that would be implemented as series of extensions and modifications to existing Library Systems to make them work consistently.

However, it is not an easy task to convince Operating System Developers to mend their Evil Ways, and people want to build shared Libraries right now, even on buggy, broken, confused operating systems.

For this reason, libtool was designed as an independent shell script. It isolates the problems and inconsistencies in Library building that plague Makefile writers by wrapping the Compiler Suite on different Platforms with a consistent, powerful Interface.

With luck, libtool will be useful to and used by the GNU community, and that the lessons that were learned in writing it will be taken up by Designers of future Library Systems.
