brandelf(1) mark an ELF binary for a specific ABI


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


The utility marks an ELF binary to be run under a certain ABI for Fx .

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.
Writes the list of all known ELF types to the standard error.
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 ''
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 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.


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