nlmconv(1)            GNU Development Tools            nlmconv(1)

NAME
       nlmconv - converts object code into an NLM

SYNOPSIS
       nlmconv
              [-I bfdname | --input-target=bfdname]
              [-O bfdname | --output-target=bfdname]
              [-T headerfile | --header-file=headerfile]
              [-V | --version] [--help] infile outfile

DESCRIPTION
       nlmconv converts the relocatable object file infile into
       the NetWare Loadable Module outfile, optionally reading
       headerfile for NLM header information.  For instructions
       on writing the NLM command file language used in header
       files, see The NetWare Tool Maker Specification Manual,
       available from Novell, Inc.  nlmconv currently works with
       i386 object files in COFF, ELF, or a.out format, and with
       SPARC object files in ELF or a.out format.
       nlmconv uses the GNU Binary File Descriptor library to
       read infile.

OPTIONS
       -I bfdname, --input-target=bfdname
              Consider the source file's object format to be
              bfdname, rather than attempting to deduce it.

       -O bfdname, --output-target=bfdname
              Write the output file using the object format
              bfdname.  nlmconv infers the output format based on
              the input format, e.g. for an i386 input file the
              output format is nlm32-i386.

       -T headerfile, --header-file=headerfile
              Reads headerfile for NLM header information.  For
              instructions on writing the NLM command file
              language used in header files, see The NetWare Tool
              Maker Specification Manual, available from Novell,
              Inc.

       -V, --version
              Show the version number of nlmconv and exit.

       -h, --help
              Show a summary of the options to nlmconv and exit.
