nlmconv can perform a link step. In other words, you can list
more than one object file for input if you list them in the definitions
file (rather than simply specifying one input file on the command line).
In this case, nlmconv calls the linker for you.
- -I bfdname
Object format of the input file. nlmconv can usually determine
the format of a given file (so no default is necessary).
- -O bfdname
Object format of the output file. nlmconv infers the output
format based on the input format, e.g. for a i386 input file the
output format is nlm32-i386.
- -T headerfile
Reads headerfile for NLM header information. For instructions on
writing the NLM command file language used in header files, see see the
linkers section, of the NLM Development and Tools
Overview, which is part of the NLM Software Developer's Kit, available
from Novell, Inc.

Use linker for any linking. linker can be an absolute or a

Read command-line options from file. The options read are
inserted in place of the original @file option. If file
does not exist, or cannot be read, then the option will be treated
literally, and not removed.
Options in file are separated by whitespace. A whitespace
character may be included in an option by surrounding the entire
option in either single or double quotes. Any character (including a
backslash) may be included by prefixing the character to be included
with a backslash. The file may itself contain additional
@file options; any such options will be processed recursively.
