     elf2ecoff - convert a NetBSD ELF-format executable to NetBSD ECOFF format

     elf2ecoff elf-file ecoff-file

     Reads a fully-linked ELF executable (such as a  linked kernel) and
     produces an equivalent ECOFF format executable file.

     The elf2ecoff utility is used to convert native NetBSD ELF binaries to
     ECOFF format, for compatibility with DECstation diskless-boot PROM code
     and diskless-boot servers that require ECOFF format binaries.

     elf2ecoff was originally developed for NetBSD/pmax by Ted Lemon and was
     first distributed with the pmax port of NetBSD 1.1.

     elf2ecoff assumes there are no multiply-referenced symbols in the input
     ELF symbol section.  It may be necessary to link with -x to avoid
     duplicate symbols.

     In some environments, the GNU binutils objcopy(1) utility may be a better
     solution than elf2ecoff.
