Hello,

We are integrating (static linking) gRPC in one of our C++ components. We have built gRPC from source and this has resulted in the following static libraries:

libgrpc.a
libgrpc++.a
libgrpc++_alts.a
libgrpc++_error_details.a
libgrpc_plugin_support.a
libgrpcpp_channelz.a
libgrpc++_reflection.a
libgrpc_unsecure.a
libgrpc++_unsecure.a

Is there documentation on what each library does? Or can anyone explain the difference between them? All we are interested in a gRPC client.

Kind regards,
Minh

Hi Minh, 
You can find the depending relations in BUILD file. In the same file, you can find the source files composing the library. Inside each source file, there are nessesary comments. You can also read grpc c++ API document, which is more readable than the source file.
