This chapter discusses Libtool an open source application that simplifies creating and maintaining precompiled collections of functions (for languages such as C) or classes and associated methods (in object-oriented languages such as C++), generally referred to as libraries, that can subsequently be used by and linked to applications. Throughout this chapter, the term code libraries is used as a general, language-independent term for a precompiled collection of functions or classes that is external to an application and linked into the application during final compilation to enable the application to execute the functions or methods present in the library.
