How would you write an ELF wrapper around COFF? I am trying to convert
COFF file into ELF format such that I can read usage message with "use
-i" on the QNX target. To my knowledge "use -i" only supports ELF
format, hence I need the executable in ELF format.

I tried looking over internet and I found some ideas like objcopy and
linking COFF and ELF to produce a combined executable. However, they
did not help. So my theoretical solution is to write ELF wrapper
around COFF file. Any ideas as to how I can do this?
