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 *note BFD: (ld.info)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. `-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). *Note Target Selection::, for more information. `-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'. *Note Target Selection::, for more information. `-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'.
