The image conversion utility, fromelf, enables you to:
Process ARM ELF object and image files produced by the compiler, assembler, and linker.
Process all ELF files in an archive produced by armar, and output the processed files into another archive if required.
Convert ELF images into other formats that can be used by ROM tools or directly loaded into memory. The formats available are:
Motorola 32-bit S-record
Byte oriented (Verilog Memory Model) hexadecimal
ELF. You can resave as ELF, for example, to remove debug information from an ELF image.
Protect Intellectual Property (IP) in images and objects that are delivered to third parties.
Display information about the input file, for example, disassembly output or symbol listings, to either
stdoutor a text file.
If your image is produced without debug information, fromelf cannot:
translate the image into other file formats
produce a meaningful disassembly listing.
