Does anyone have tools to byte-swap COFF files? I want to generate them
on a big-endian system and consume them on a little-endian system. COFF
is liberally littered with shorts and ints, written and read in whatever
byte order is natural for system.
The binary file descriptor library (BFD) was written to solve problems
like this. A set of binutils (ar, nm, ld, strip, copy etc) have been
written to use it.
Sources are available for ftp from many places, version 1.97 can be
had from alpha.gnu.ai.mit.edu in /pub/gnu.
