Hi all,

        I am using libtool version 1.5.18 to create a library I wrote for
unit testing. It has come to the stage where I would find it useful to
have multiple versions of this library installed at any point in time
on my machine.

I had a look at the -version-info option, and that does not quite
achieve what I desire, however the -release tag is what I want. The
problem is however that the static libraries are still named
libatcppunit.a and not libatcppunit-1.0.6.a as I would have expected.
So various versions of the static library can not co-exist.

Note: The dynamic libraries are correctly named,
its just the static ones that are not.

Is there any way to get libtool to name this static library,
libatcppunit-1.0.6.a? It would still be desirable for a libatcppunit.a
to exist, but for projects that need a specific version they would
link with a particular version of the library.

I thought I would ask this question here, as I had a look on the web,
and someone else has brought this issue up in the past but I could not
see any resolution for it.

For reference the address to the other message is:
