I am interested in an converter from IEEE 695 to OMF386 format. I did
lookup the comp.compilers archive, but found only 3 similar queries
without an answer. The obvious solution would be objcopy from gnu
binutils, but the bfd library doesnt seem to support omf386. Maybe I
could write it myself (the omf386 docs are on, but of course I would prefer not to
reinvent the wheel. In fact, as OMF386 is quite common, I am surprised
that bfd does not support this format already. Or are there any
technical or legal problems?


[OMF is a pain in the neck to deal with because it's a lot of little
chunks of info, not collected into logical sections like most of the
other formats that BFD handles. -John]
