       elfedit - Update	the ELF	header of ELF files.

       elfedit [--input-mach=machine]

       elfedit updates the ELF header of ELF files which have the matching ELF
       machine and file	types.	The options control how	and which fields in
       the ELF header should be	updated.

       elffile... are the ELF files to be updated.  32-bit and 64-bit ELF
       files are supported, as are archives containing ELF files.

       The long	and short forms	of options, shown here as alternatives,	are
       equivalent. At least one	of the --output-mach, --output-type and
       --output-osabi options must be given.

	   Set the matching input ELF machine type to machine.	If
	   --input-mach	isn't specified, it will match any ELF machine types.

	   The supported ELF machine types are,	i386, IAMCU, L1OM, K1OM	and

	   Change the ELF machine type in the ELF header to machine.  The
	   supported ELF machine types are the same as --input-mach.

	   Set the matching input ELF file type	to type.  If --input-type
	   isn't specified, it will match any ELF file types.

	   The supported ELF file types	are, rel, exec and dyn.

	   Change the ELF file type in the ELF header to type.	The supported
	   ELF types are the same as --input-type.

	   Set the matching input ELF file OSABI to osabi.  If --input-osabi
	   isn't specified, it will match any ELF OSABIs.

	   The supported ELF OSABIs are, none, HPUX, NetBSD, GNU, Linux	(alias
	   for GNU), Solaris, AIX, Irix, FreeBSD, TRU64, Modesto, OpenBSD,
	   OpenVMS, NSK, AROS and FenixOS.

	   Change the ELF OSABI	in the ELF header to osabi.  The supported ELF
	   OSABI are the same as --input-osabi.

	   Display the version number of elfedit.

	   Display the command line options understood by elfedit.

	   Read	command-line options from file.	 The options read are inserted
	   in place of the original @file option.  If file does	not exist, or
	   cannot be read, then	the option will	be treated literally, and not

	   Options in file are separated by whitespace.	 A whitespace
	   character may be included in	an option by surrounding the entire
	   option in either single or double quotes.  Any character (including
	   a backslash)	may be included	by prefixing the character to be
	   included with a backslash.  The file	may itself contain additional
	   @file options; any such options will	be processed recursively.
