NAME

brandelfmark an ELF binary for a specific ABI

SYNOPSIS

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

DESCRIPTION

The brandelf utility marks an ELF binary to be run under a certain ABI for FreeBSD.
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.
-v
Turns on verbose output.
-t string
Brands the given ELF binaries to be of the string ABI type. Currently supported ABIs are “FreeBSD”, “Linux”, and “SVR4”.
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
