First thanks for your answer

No problem.

I've already red this doc, but it doesn't explain why current, revision and age number are changed

Sure it does.

You are confusing the *library* version with the *interface* version. C:R:A allows a developer to describe the interface version and compatibility details for their library. The soname and filename of the eventual library is an
implementation detail that depends how *library* versions work on the
particular OS you build on -- and will be different on Linux vs Windows vs
AIX vs HPUX etc

So under Linux, if Major=C-A, Minor=A, Micro=R, say I develope a library starting with 0.0.0: According paragraph 6.3 of http://www.gnu.org/software/libtool/manual.html,
Interfaces and library versions progress as follow:


but Changing an interface modifies library version from 0.3.1 to 1.3.0
and removing an interface modifies library version from 2.3.0 to 6.0.0

Aren't library versions increasing a little too fast ?

Too fast for what?  Are you worried about running out of numbers? ;-)

Hi Gary,

I just thought about publishing "mylib-85.0.0"  (seems not very serious ;-))
