NLMCONV(1)                  GNU Development Tools                 NLMCONV(1)

NAME         top

       nlmconv - converts object code into an NLM.

SYNOPSIS         top

       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         top

       nlmconv converts the relocatable i386 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 linkers section, NLMLINK
       in particular, 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         top

       -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
           nlmconv.

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

       -h
       --help
           Prints a usage summary.

       -V
       --version
           Prints the version number for nlmconv.

       @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.
