ELF2ECOFF(1)						    BSD General Commands Manual 					      ELF2ECOFF(1)

NAME
elf2ecoff -- convert a NetBSD ELF-format executable to NetBSD ECOFF format SYNOPSIS
elf2ecoff elf-file ecoff-file DESCRIPTION
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. SEE ALSO
elf2aout(1), ld(1), kvm(3), a.out(5), elf(5), kvm_mkdb(8) HISTORY
elf2ecoff was originally developed for NetBSD/pmax by Ted Lemon and was first distributed with the pmax port of NetBSD 1.1. BUGS
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. BSD

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) and kvm_mkdb(8), which currently expect an a.out format kernel.
