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.
