3.41 --linkview, --no_linkview

Controls the section-level view from the ELF image.


--no_linkview discards the section-level view and retains only the segment-level view (load time view).

Discarding the section-level view eliminates:

  • The section header table.

  • The section header string table.

  • The string table.

  • The symbol table.

  • All debug sections.

All that is left in the output is the program header table and the program segments.

According to the System V Application Binary Interface specification, these are all that a program loader can rely on being present in an ELF file.


This option is deprecated.


The following restrictions apply:

  • You must use --elf with --linkview and --no_linkview.

  • Do not use the --no_linkview option with SysV images.


To get ELF format output for image.axf, enter:

fromelf --no_linkview --elf image.axf --output=image_nlk.axf
