elfedit updates the ELF header of ELF files which have the
matching ELF machine and file types.  The options control
how and which fields in the ELF header should be updated.

     elffile... are the ELF files to be updated.  32−bit and
64−bit ELF files are supported, as are archives containing
ELF files.

The long and short forms of options, shown here as
alternatives, are equivalent. At least one of the
−−output−mach, −−output−type and −−output−osabi options must
be given.

−−input−mach=machine
    Set the matching input ELF machine type to machine.  If
    −−input−mach isn’t specified, it will match any ELF
    machine types.

    The supported ELF machine types are, L1OM, K1OM and
    x86−64.

−−output−mach=machine
    Change the ELF machine type in the ELF header to
    machine.  The supported ELF machine types are the same
    as −−input−mach.

−−input−type=type
    Set the matching input ELF file type to type.  If
    −−input−type isn’t specified, it will match any ELF file
    types.

    The supported ELF file types are, rel, exec and dyn.

−−output−type=type
    Change the ELF file type in the ELF header to type.  The
    supported ELF types are the same as −−input−type.

−−input−osabi=osabi
    Set the matching input ELF file OSABI to osabi.  If
    −−input−osabi isn’t specified, it will match any ELF
    OSABIs.










                             ‐2‐


    The supported ELF OSABIs are, none, HPUX, NetBSD, GNU,
    Linux (alias for GNU), Solaris, AIX, Irix, FreeBSD,
    TRU64, Modesto, OpenBSD, OpenVMS, NSK, AROS and FenixOS.

−−output−osabi=osabi
    Change the ELF OSABI in the ELF header to osabi.  The
    supported ELF OSABI are the same as −−input−osabi.

−v

−−version
    Display the version number of elfedit.

−h

−−help
    Display the command line options understood by elfedit.

@file
    Read command‐line options from file.  The options read
    are inserted in place of the original @file option.  If
    file does not exist, or cannot be read, then the option
    will be treated literally, and not removed.

    Options in file are separated by whitespace.  A
    whitespace character may be included in an option by
    surrounding the entire option in either single or double
    quotes.  Any character (including a backslash) may be
    included by prefixing the character to be included with
    a backslash.  The file may itself contain additional
    @file options; any such options will be processed
    recursively.
