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.
