[R] References about dot a files

I'm trying to find some reading material about .a files. I'm attempting to build a package which accesses many C routines via .Call, and its been suggested that I need a lib_C_code.a file inside the C directory. What does such a file do? Where can I read somthing about it?

I've tried to search for it, but keywords "R package .a" doesn't work because the ".a" is too generic.

Thanks in advance!
