NAME

brandelf -- mark an ELF binary for a specific ABI

SYNOPSIS

brandelf [-l] [-f ELF_ABI_number] [-t string] file ...

DESCRIPTION

The brandelf utility marks an ELF binary to be run under a certain ABI for DragonFly. The options are as follows: -f ELF_ABI_number Forces branding with the supplied ELF ABI number. Incompatible with the -t option. These values are assigned by SCO/USL. -l Writes the list of all known ELF types to the standard error. -t string Brands the given ELF binaries to be of the string ABI type. Cur- rently supported ABIs are ``FreeBSD'', ``Linux'', and ``SVR4''. DragonFly uses ``FreeBSD'' as its native branding. file If -t string is given it will brand file to be of type string, otherwise it will simply display the branding of file.

EXIT STATUS

Exit status is 0 on success, and 1 if the command fails if a file does not exist, is too short, fails to brand properly, or the brand requested is not one of the known types and the -f option is not set.

EXAMPLES

The following is an example of a typical usage of the brandelf command: brandelf file brandelf -t Linux file
