3.2 --bin

Produces plain binary output, one file for each load region. You can split the output from this option into multiple files with the --widthxbanks option.

Restrictions

The following restrictions apply:

  • You cannot use this option with object files.
  • You must use --output with this option.

Considerations when using --bin

If you convert an ELF image containing multiple load regions to a binary format, fromelf creates an output directory named destination and generates one binary output file for each load region in the input image. fromelf places the output files in the destination directory.

Note:

For multiple load regions, the name of the first non-empty execution region in the corresponding load region is used for the filename.

A file is only created when the load region describes code or data that is present in the ELF file. For example a load region containing only execution regions with ZI data in them does not result in a output file.

Example

To convert an ELF file to a plain binary file, for example outfile.bin, enter:

fromelf --bin --output=outfile.bin infile.axf
