There is no quick easy "conversion" process. You can manually make a shared amiga library by looking at an example amiga library source (There is one on aminet). To easily port programs which you would normally link against the .a library you would also have to make a stubs link library which then uses the shared library. There are other complications. A good start might be to contact the guy who ported SDL to the Amiga.


Alternatively you can make an ixlibrary from a .a
This is an ixemul shared library and acts more like a shared library does under linux etc. for information about this read the documentation in the source archive for a2ixlibrary which is available on the geekgadgets server.


you will need a gg development environment to use this. and it does require some work.
