I have acquired various name.lib files, and I know they are static library projects built by Visual Studio Shell that came with various IVF (and CVF) applications over the years. I know that they contain various name.obj files, and I know that if I include all of the libs with my project that I can then call any of a whole bunch of name.obj subroutines. But how can I determine what obj files are in each lib?
In the old DOS days we built static libs using the LIB.EXE program, which had a simple (command-line) option to list the contents of a lib file.The only LIB.EXE program on my computer is version 3.15 (c) 1989, so it doesn't work well!
The only info I can find on line is that LIB still exists and is packaged with Visual Studio. But perhaps not the VS shell that we get with IVF? And if it is there, how do I use it?
