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.
