DESCRIPTION
       elfedit updates the ELF header and program property of ELF files which
       have the matching ELF machine and file types.  The options control how
       and which fields in the ELF header and program property should be
       updated.

       elffile... are the ELF files to be updated.  32-bit and 64-bit ELF
       files are supported, as are archives containing ELF files.

OPTIONS
       The long and short forms of options, shown here as alternatives, are
       equivalent. At least one of the --output-mach, --output-type,
       --output-osabi, --enable-x86-feature and --disable-x86-feature options
       must be given.

       --input-mach=machine
           Set the matching input ELF machine type to machine.  If
           --input-mach isn't specified, it will match any ELF machine types.

           The supported ELF machine types are, i386, IAMCU, L1OM, K1OM and
           x86-64.

       --output-mach=machine
           Change the ELF machine type in the ELF header to machine.  The
           supported ELF machine types are the same as --input-mach.

       --input-type=type
           Set the matching input ELF file type to type.  If --input-type
           isn't specified, it will match any ELF file types.

           The supported ELF file types are, rel, exec and dyn.

       --output-type=type
           Change the ELF file type in the ELF header to type.  The supported
           ELF types are the same as --input-type.

       --input-osabi=osabi
           Set the matching input ELF file OSABI to osabi.  If --input-osabi
           isn't specified, it will match any ELF OSABIs.

           The supported ELF OSABIs are, none, HPUX, NetBSD, GNU, Linux (alias
           for GNU), Solaris, AIX, Irix, FreeBSD, TRU64, Modesto, OpenBSD,
           OpenVMS, NSK, AROS and FenixOS.

       --output-osabi=osabi
           Change the ELF OSABI in the ELF header to osabi.  The supported ELF
           OSABI are the same as --input-osabi.

       --enable-x86-feature=feature
           Set the feature bit in program property in exec or dyn ELF files
           with machine types of i386 or x86-64.  The supported features are,
           ibt and shstk.

       --disable-x86-feature=feature
           Clear the feature bit in program property in exec or dyn ELF files
           with machine types of i386 or x86-64.  The supported features are
           the same as --enable-x86-feature.

           Note: --enable-x86-feature and --disable-x86-feature are available
           only on hosts with mmap support.

       -v
       --version
           Display the version number of elfedit.

       -h
       --help
           Display the command-line options understood by elfedit.

       @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.
