ELF2AOUT(1) General Commands Manual ELF2AOUT(1) NAME elf2aout - convert a NetBSD ELF-format executable to NetBSD a.out format SYNOPSIS elf2aout elf-file aout-file DESCRIPTION Reads a fully-linked ELF executable (such as a linked kernel) and produces an equivalent a.out format executable file. The elf2aout utility is used to convert native NetBSD ELF binaries to a.out format, for compatibility with bootblocks and kernel-reading utilities like kvm(3), which currently expect an a.out format kernel. SEE ALSO elf2ecoff(1), ld(1), kvm(3), a.out(5), elf(5) HISTORY elf2aout was originally developed for NetBSD/pmax by Ted Lemon and was first distributed with the pmax port of NetBSD 1.1. BUGS elf2aout assumes there are no multiply-referenced symbols in the input ELF symbol section. It may be necessary to link with -x to avoid such duplicate symbols. In some environments, the GNU binutils objcopy(1) utility may be a better solution than elf2aout. NetBSD 8.0 September 30, 1996 NetBSD 8.0
