nlmconv converts a relocatable object file into a NetWare Loadable Module.
Warning: nlmconv is not always built as part of the binary utilities, since it is only useful for NLM targets.
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
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 ; see BFD , for more information.
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.
