DESCRIPTION

eu-elfclassify identifies the primary purpose of a particular kind of
 ELF file or files  

OPTIONS

The long and short forms of options, shown here as alternatives, are equivalent. All of the classification options must apply at the same time to a particular file. Classification options can be negated using a --not- prefix.  

Classification Options

--core
File is an ELF core dump file.
FB--debug-only
File is a debug only ELF file (separate .debug, .dwo or dwz multi-file).
--elf
File looks like an ELF object or archive/static library (default).
--elf-archive
File is an ELF archive or static library.
--elf-file
File is an regular ELF object (not an archive/static library).
--executable
File is (primarily) an ELF program executable (not primarily a DS.O)
--library
File is an ELF shared object (DSO) (might also be an executable).
--linux-kernel-module
File is a linux kernel module.
--loadable
File is a loadable ELF object (program or shared object).
--program
File is an ELF program executable (might also be a DSO).
--shared
File is (primarily) an ELF shared object (DSO) (not primarily an executable).
--unstripped
File is an ELF file with symbol table or .debug_* sections and can be stripped further.
 

Input flags

-f
--file
Only classify regular (not symlink nor special device) files.
--no-stdin
Do not read files from standard input (default).
--stdin
Also read file names to process from standard input, separated by newlines.
--stdin0
Also read file names to process from standard input, separated by ASCII NUL bytes.
-z
--compressed
Try to open compressed files or embedded (kernel) ELF images.
 

Output flags

--matching
If printing file names, print matching files (default).
--no-print
Do not output file names.
--not-matching
If printing file names, print files that do not match.
--print
Output names of files, separated by newline.
--print0
Output names of files, separated by ASCII NUL.
 

Additional flags

-q
--quiet
Suppress some error output (counterpart to --verbose).
-v
--verbose
Output additional information (can be specified multiple times).
-?
--help
Give this help list.
--usage
Give a short usage message.
-V
--version
Print program version.
