1.1.3 What the linker outputs

armlink can create executable images and object files.

Output from armlink can be:

  • An ELF executable image.
  • A partially linked ELF object that can be used as input in a subsequent link step.
  • A shared object, compatible with the Base Platform Application Binary Interface (BPABI) or System V (SysV) specification, or a BPABI or SysV executable file.

Note:

You can also use fromelf to convert an ELF executable image to other file formats, or to display, process, and protect the content of an ELF executable image.
