Produces plain binary output, one file for each load region. You can split the output from this option into multiple files with the
The following restrictions apply:
- You cannot use this option with object files.
- You must use

Considerations when using --bin
If you convert an ELF image containing multiple load regions to a binary
format, fromelf creates an output directory named
and generates one binary output file for
each load region in the input image. fromelf places the output files in
For multiple load regions, the name of the first non-empty execution region in the corresponding load region is used for the filename.
A file is only created when the load region describes code or data that is present in the ELF file. For example a load region containing only execution regions with ZI data in them does not result in a output file.
To convert an ELF file to a plain binary file, for example
fromelf --bin --output=outfile.bin infile.axf
