Dear All,

Could anybody explain what difference between static library(.a) and shared object(.so) is in ROS library types?

How can I build them? Is there another type?

I have written a c++ class and build it as separate ROS pkg available for other ROS pkgs. Is it a static library?

Thanks for your explanations.

Whilst not directly an answer of mine, this topic is too old to answer afresh!

Stackoverflow Question 1

Stackoverflow Question 2

These explain it all fairly well.
