NAME

       nlmconv - converts object code into an NLM.

SYNOPSIS

       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

       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

       -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.
