Creation of static library with example

Creation of Static Libraries In Linux Simple Steps

1. Create Test  Directory
  Create working test directory as: /home/test/so
 
 2. Choose Library Files
   library file name: add.c
     int add(int a, int b)
     {
         return (a+b);
     }
3. Compile
Now Compile Static Library with -shared option
   gcc -c add.c
   gcc -shared -o libadd.so add.o
 
4. Usage of Static Library
 Here is example application uses this library.
   filename: main.c
   int main(void)
   {
      printf("result: %d", add(1,2));
      return 0;
   }
 
5. Compile Example Code
  gcc main.c -o main -L  <path where the library file is there, in our example it is libadd.so> -l add
       (in last option -l add we have to specify library name. name of the library is, removing the "lib"
         from libadd. i.e. how gcc takes.)
   example: gcc main.c -o main -L /home/test/so -ladd
 
6. export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=<directory where your .so file is>
    if you copy the .so file to /lib  directory no need to set this environment variable

Delete Last Char in String C program Simple Way

How to delete the last character in a string?
Lets say I have a string "/data/share/" I want to delete the last character from the string ie "/" so that output will be "/data/share"; Here are some methods to do this in C language.
one way could be use of strncat() function;
char*strncat(char*restricts1, constchar*restricts2, size_tn);
The strncat() function appends not more than n characters from s2, and
then adds a terminating `\0'.
#include
Another simple way is,
say the string variable is str_p
Then simply put
str_p[(strlen(str_p)-1)] = '\0';
And you are done;
