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]
               [-d|--debug] [-l linker|--linker=linker]
               [-h|--help] [-V|--version]
               infile outfile


DESCRIPTION

       nlmconv  converts the relocatable i386 object file infile into the Net-
       Ware 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 linkers section, NLMLINK in par-
       ticular,  of  the  NLM Development and Tools Overview, which is part of
       the NLM Software Developer's Kit (``NLM SDK''), available from  Novell,
       Inc.   nlmconv  uses  the  GNU  Binary  File Descriptor library to read
       infile;

       nlmconv can perform a link step.  In other words,  you  can  list  more
       than one object file for input if you list them in the definitions file
       (rather than simply specifying one input file on the command line).  In
       this case, nlmconv calls the linker for you.


OPTIONS

       -I bfdname
       --input-target=bfdname
           Object format of the input file.  nlmconv can usually determine the
           format of a given file (so no default is necessary).

       -O bfdname
       --output-target=bfdname
           Object format of the output file.  nlmconv infers the output format
           based  on  the  input format, e.g. for a 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 see
           the linkers section, of the NLM  Development  and  Tools  Overview,
           which  is  part of the NLM Software Developer's Kit, available from
           Novell, Inc.

       -d
       --debug
           Displays (on standard error) the linker command line used  by  nlm-
           conv.

       -l linker
       --linker=linker
           Use  linker  for any linking.  linker can be an absolute or a rela-
           tive pathname.
