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 Secure code import library that is required by developers building a Non-secure image that needs to call a Secure image.

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.
