NLMCONV(1) GNU Development Tools NLMCONV(1)NAMEnlmconv - converts object code into an NLM.
SYNOPSISnlmconv [-I bfdname|--input-target=bfdname]
[-d|--debug] [-l linker|--linker=linker]
DESCRIPTIONnlmconv 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
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.
Object format of the input file. nlmconv can usually determine the
format of a given file (so no default is necessary).
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.
Reads headerfile for NLM header information. For instructions on
writing the NLM command file language used in header files, see see

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
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.
