BRANDELF(1)		FreeBSD	General	Commands Manual		   BRANDELF(1)

NAME
     brandelf -- mark 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.  Cur-
	     rently 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
