	* libaout.h (aout_backend_data): added exec_header_not_counted
	field. For ZMAGIC files only, when text_includes_header is set, by

	(elf_slurp_symbol_table): If st_shndx doesn't match any of our
	tests, set the section to bfd_abs_section.

	the default.  Given that we *write* the suckers (for long

	seem to be needed, and many machines don't have it.

	asked. 	Do not even slurp string tables.
	(elf_get_symtab_upper_bound):  Count 'em without reading them.

	with more than one auxent can cause nasty core dumps. 

	* coffcode.h, libcoff.c: added new fielded to coff_symbol_struct
	"done_lineno" so that a symbol which appears twice in the symbol
	table only gets it's linenumbers relocated once. Modifed
	(coff_write_native_symbol) and (coff_make_empty_symbol) to make

	generated by gen-aout.
	* aout-target.h:  Make a little more flexible.
	* libaout.h, aout-target.h:  Removed WORK_OUT_FILE_POSTIONS

	remove unused variable.

Tue Dec 17 19:48:59 1991  Fred Fish  (fnf at cygnus.com)

	* elf.c (elf_core_file_matches_executable_p):  Enclose corename
	and execname inside HAVE_PROCFS ifdef since they are unused
	when it is not defined.

Mon Dec 16 12:00:10 1991  Fred Fish  (fnf at cygnus.com)

	* elf.c:  Flag all sections as either code or data.  We can't
	be sure what they are anyway, since ELF doesn't fit the
	traditional model of text+data+bss very well.  Add new local
	function elf_read() to simplify code.  Record entry point in
	the bfd structure.

Thu Dec 12 21:01:22 1991  John Gilmore  (gnu at cygnus.com)

	  against ${srcdir}.

Thu Dec  5 22:46:19 1991  K. Richard Pixley  (rich at rtl.cygnus.com)

	* Makefile.in: idestdir and ddestdir go away.  Added copyrights

	* aoutf1.h (sunos_<size>_object_p, sunos4_callback): moved the
	computation of arch and machine type so it's worked out before
	some_aout_object_p is called. 
	* aoutx.h: (some_aout_object_p): don't set arch and mach to
	* archures.c: add extra field 'section_align_power' to hold
	default section alignment in object files.

	initialize the new field.
	* bout.c (b_out_callback): replace the text size, since aout
	fries them.

Wed Dec  4 02:00:30 1991  John Gilmore  (gnu at cygnus.com)

	* bfd.c (bfd_get_mtime):  Don't cache mtime any more; only

Tue Dec  3 22:54:50 1991  John Gilmore  (gnu at cygnus.com)

	* targets.c:  Revise comments about how to configure the target
	vector, to match reality.  Remove mention of obsolete methods.
	Remove long lists of capitalized macros that turn into the same
	thing in lowercase.  Normal vector simply lists all known
	lowercase xvec names; all other cases are handled by SELECT_VECS.

	* config/mt-i386-coff:  Set DEFAULT_VECTOR to real identifier,
	not macro name.

	* config/mt-i960-{coff,bout}:  Use SELECT_VECS to make a short
	list of supported targets.

Tue Dec  3 14:06:15 1991  Per Bothner  (bothner at cygnus.com)

	* archive.c (bsd_write_armap):  The pad byte sometimes added to
	the string table in a __.SYMDEF member is now
	counted as part of the size of the string table.
	This is compatible with the old ranlib, as well as Sun's.

Tue Dec  3 10:53:30 1991  Steve Chamberlain  (sac at rtl.cygnus.com)

	* srec.c: Rewrote to fix many bugs; now gets the record type
	right, doesn't choke on input, sets the start address in an S9 and
	fills in the filename on an S0.

Thu Nov 21 19:56:40 1991  Per Bothner  (bothner at cygnus.com)

	* stab-syms.c, syms.c:  Moved bfd_stab_name() and bfd_stab_names[]
	from syms.c to new file stab-syms.c.  Also, since GNU extended
	type codes such as N_SETT are no longer in ../include/stab.def,
	include them manually.

	bfd_stab_names[] to aout_stab_name() and aout_stab_names[].
	* libaout.h: Added prototype for aout_stab_name().

	* aoutx.h:  Fix comments to match.

Tue Nov 19 18:49:01 1991  Per Bothner  (bothner at cygnus.com)

	LOGICAL_TXTOFF, LOGICAL_TXTSIZE macros to figure out numbers
	for the "logical" text segment (i.e. never consider the exec
	header to be part of the text segment).  This change is
	needed for consistency with various other parts of bfd and ld.
	* aoutx.h (NAME(aout,soe_aout_object_p)):  Fix comment,
	and move calculation of obj_textsec(abfd)->size to libaout.h.

	or bloated target_vector.
	* targets.c:  Use new MINIMIZE macro, and add trad_core if needed.
	* newsos3.c:  Fixes to ../include/aout64.h remove need
	for special N_TXTOFF macro, but require N_HEADER_IN_TEXT.

Mon Nov 18 12:00:59 1991  Per Bothner  (bothner at cygnus.com)

	* aout-target.h, aoutf1.h, newsos3.c:  Make aout-target.h

	* host-aout.c:  Add FIXME note.

Sun Nov 17 13:29:39 1991  Per Bothner  (bothner at cygnus.com)

	* targets.c:  Make the default target_vector contain
	just &DEFAULT_VECTOR.  This makes executables a lot smaller.
	Old behavior can be gotten by defining ALL_TARGETS.
	* aoutf1.h, demo64.c, i386aout.c, newsos3.c, sunos.c:
	Factored out common code into new file aout-target.h.
	Saves a lot of duplicate code for a.out variants.

    	* elf.c:  Add minimal support for ELF symbol tables.  Generates
	canonical bfd symbol tables from ELF symbol tables.  Change the
	name of some functions from bfd_<name> to elf_<name>.

	* syms.c:  Trivial fix to comment to remove a redundant "to".

Wed Nov 13 17:02:01 1991  John Gilmore  (gnu at cygnus.com)

	* coff-{i386,m68k,m88k}.c:  Change name of file format to standard
	form that GDB recognizes as COFF.

Tue Nov 12 07:21:41 1991  John Gilmore  (gnu at cygnus.com)

	* coff-m88k.c (coff_write_armap):  Just #undef it.

Mon Nov 11 20:30:18 1991  Steve Chamberlain  (sac at cygnus.com)

	* Makefile.in: standardize on MINUS_G to disable debugging
	* coff-m88k.c: create coff armaps instead of bsd ones.
	* opncls.c (bfd_close_all_done), (bfd_close): Mask out random bits
	when calling chmod.

Mon Nov 11 19:07:32 1991  Fred Fish  (fnf at cygnus.com)

	* elf.c:  Additions to support ELF format core files.
	* config/mh-amix:  Add -DHAVE_PROCFS to HDEFINES, since host
	has support for /proc (all the include files in particular).

Mon Nov 11 18:36:47 1991  Per Bothner  (bothner at cygnus.com)

	* aoutx.h (NAME(aout,find_nearest_line)):  Handle the case
	of two N_SO stabs, one for directory, and one for filename.

	* bfd-in.h (print_vma):  Factor out duplicate definition.

	Exit a little more gracefully when malloc returns NULL.
	* libbfd.c: New function bfd_xmalloc (malloc wrapper).
	* opncls.c, syms.c, bout.c, aoutx.h:  Replace malloc by bfd_xmalloc.

	* config/mt-m68k-elf:  Define DEFAULT_VECTOR as elf_big_vec.

	* elf.c (elf_object_p):  Don't try to create a bfd section for
	the first ELF section header.  It is just a placeholder.

Sat Nov  9 03:04:26 1991  John Gilmore  (gnu at cygnus.com)

	* coff-rs6000.c, config/mh-rs6000:  Make it work on archive and
	core files, when compiling native.
	* hosts/h-rs6000.h:  Define FASCIST_FDOPEN for bfd_fdopenr.

	FIXME:  The aoutf1.h change below needs to be reversed back
	to the way it was.

Thu Nov  7 11:03:55 1991  Steve Chamberlain  (sac at rtl.cygnus.com)

	* coffcode.h: Defined new macros [PUT|GET]LINENO_LNNO for
	manipulation of lnno fields in lineno structs in a coff-<f>.h
	independent way. Override it in coff-<f>.h to your favourite
	number if you don't have a 16bit lnno field. (coff_swap_lineno_in)
	(coff_swap_lineno_out): modified to use the new macros.

Mon Nov  4 11:38:33 1991  Steve Chamberlain  (sac at cygnus.com)

	* aoutf1.h (sunos4_callback): Now defaults to 68020 rather than
	unknown arch when the magic number doesn't specify the
	architecture, since some OSs (eg old sun3s) don't set the number, and
	020 is probably the right answer anyway.

Sun Nov  3 12:07:08 1991  Per Bothner  (bothner at cygnus.com)

	* hosts/h-news.h, hosts/h-rtbsd.h:
	Get rid of MISSING_VFPRINTF, since libiberty provides one.

	bfd_print_symbol_nm, for use by nm.
	* aoutx.h (NAME(aout,print_symbol)):  Add code for new
	bfd_print_symbol_nm option, to print in nm format.
	* coffcode.h (coff_print_symbol), ieee.c (ieee_print_symbol)
	oasys.c (oasys_print_symbol):  Provide stub implementations
	for bfd_print_symbol_nm.
	* syms.c:  New function bfd_decode_symclass, used by nm printer.
	New function bfd_stab_name to look up string name of stab code.

Sat Nov  2 14:26:03 1991  Steve Chamberlain  (steve at cygnus.com)

	* Makefile.in: Added ctor.c 
	* archures.c (bfd_default_arch_struct) added
	* coffcode.h: removed a load of #if 0ed code.
	(coff_compute_file_section_positions): now works out the section
	alignment and size correctly in all cases.
	(coff_get_symtab): looks for constructor symbols and calls the
	right function when they're found. (coff_canonicalize_reloc):
	knows when a section is full of constructors and does the right
	* cpu-m88k.c: Added default_reloc_type lookup to the architecture
	* libbfd-in.h: (bfd_default_reloc_type_lookup) defun  added.
	* libcoff.h: removed #if 0ed code
	* reloc.c: (bfd_reloc_code_real_type) added BFD_RELOC_CTOR for
	arch independent constructor relocation type.
	(bfd_reloc_type_lookup): removed the comment "this will go away"
	since it won't. (bfd_howto_32): stolen from 88k, this is a 32bit
	reloc which is used when BFD_RELOC_CTOR falls through to give a
	default 32bit reloc for constructors.
	(bfd_default_reloc_type_lookup): added.
	* aoutf1.h: fixed SEGMENT_SIZE typo.

Thu Oct 31 18:23:06 1991  John Gilmore  (gnu at cygnus.com)

	* coff-rs6000.c:  Change name to "aixcoff-rs6000", to avoid
	matching prefix "coff".
	* coffcode.h (coff_swap_aux_in, coff_swap_aux_out):  Handle
	rs/6000 csect records.

Sun Oct 27 16:56:58 1991  Steve Chamberlain  (steve at cygnus.com)

	* coff-m88k.c, targets.c: change name of m88k_bcs to m88kbcs
	* configure.in: add motorola delta88 cases
	* libbfd.h, libbfd-in.h, archive.c, ieee.c, elf.c, srec.c: fix
	write_armap prototype
	* libbfd.c: add doc on bfd_write_bigendian_4byte_int

Fri Oct 25 02:48:19 1991  John Gilmore  (gnu at cygnus.com)

	* Rename COFF-related files in `coff-ARCH.c' form.
	coff-a29k.c, coff-i386.c, coff-i960.c, coff-m68k.c, coff-m88k.c,
	coff-mips.c, coff-rs6000.c to be exact.

	* Makefile.in:  Only supply TARGET_DEFAULTS to targets.c, reducing
	make output clutter.
	* config/mt-*:  Ditto.

Thu Oct 24 22:40:07 1991  John Gilmore  (gnu at cygnus.com)

	* bfd.c (bfd_errmsgs):  Add no_debug_section error message.
	* section.c (bfd_make_section):  Return NULL on attempt to create
	a section twice.
	* coffcode.h (bfd_swap_reloc_in):  Handle r_type and r_size.
	(bfd_swap_aouthdr_in):  Handle lots more members.
	(make_a_section_from_file):  If section has already been seen,
	just return false rather than overwriting it.
	(coff_real_object_p):  Understand incoming magic numbers.
	(coff_set_flags):  Understand outgoing magic numbers.
	(coff_compute_section_file_positions):  outgoing aouthdr magic #.
	(build_debug_section):  Add fn for reading debug string section.
	(get_normalized_symtab):  Handle symbol names in debug string section.
	Remove unused obj_string_table.
	(coff_slurp_symbol_table):  Handle rs6000-specific storage classes.
	* aoutx.h (translate_from_native_sym_flags, N_SET*):  Check for
	existing section before making one.
	* cpu-rs6000.c:  New file.
	* rs6000coff.c:  New file.

Thu Oct 24 02:03:24 1991  Fred Fish  (fnf at cygnus.com)

	* elf.c: Add partial support for ELF format corefiles. Still needs
	support for extracting registers from corefiles.

	* config/t-m68k-elf:  Set DEFAULT_VECTOR to elf_big_vec.

	* config/{h-amix,h-dgux,h-irix3,h-ultra3}: For systems where
	RANLIB is defined as echo, send the output to /dev/null to help
	reduce clutter in the output from doing a make.

Mon Oct 21 17:48:48 1991  John Gilmore  (gnu at cygnus.com)

	* hosts/h-vaxult.h:  Remove malloc/free decls covered in stdlib.h.
	Fix HOST_PAGE_SIZE and HOST_SEGMENT_SIZE.  From David Taylor.

Mon Oct 21 09:34:11 1991  Steve Chamberlain  (steve at rtl.cygnus.com)

	* coffcode.h (coff_compute_section_file_positions): make it pad
	section size out if there are alignment restrictions so that the
	image will be ok on a system where section positions are worked
	out by accumulating sizes rather than from the section headers.
	* targets.c (proto write_armap). Changed orl_count to unsigned.
	* opncls.c (bfd_close_all_done). Added so that generative
	programs like gas can close a bfd without causing bfd confusion.
	* libbfd.h (changed becuase of protos)
	* amdcoff.c: messed with the way that jmp displacements are
	calcualated. This may not yet be totally correct.
	* archive.c (coff_write_armap): rewrote the way that ranlibs are
	written out.
	* coffcode.h (fixup_symbol_value): now doesn't core dump if a non
	abs symbol has no section (like a register symbol).
	(coff_write_symbol) now zeros auxent before filling it up to help
	with sensitive applications.
	* libbfd.c (bfd_write_bigendian_4byte_int): added.
Wed Oct 16 22:58:45 1991  John Gilmore  (gnu at cygnus.com)

	* bfd.c:  Make sure we don't get a macro strerror().
	* opncls.c (bfd_fdopenr):  If FASCIST_FDOPEN, use "r", not "r+".
	* trad-core.c (trad_unix_core_file_failing_command):  Suppress
	attempt to recover command, ifdef NO_CORE_COMMAND.
	* hosts/h-tahoe.h:  Add FASCIST_FDOPEN and NO_CORE_COMMAND;
	revamp HOST_*, etc.
	* hosts/h-i386v.h:  Use <utime.h>, not <sys/utime.h>, unlike POSIX.

Wed Oct 16 12:43:49 1991  Per Bothner  (bothner at cygnus.com)

	* archive.c (bsd_write_argmap): The size of the ranlib structures
	should not include the size field itself.
	* aoutx.h, libaout.h (NAME(aout, sizeof_headers)):  Use
	adata(abfd)->exec_bytes_size field instead of constant macro,
	because aoutx.h compiles to a simple .o file shared by
	all 32-bits a.out targets.

Wed Oct 16 11:11:05 1991  John Gilmore  (gnu at cygnus.com)

	* configure.in:  Allow i386-sco-sysv.
	* bout.c:  Remove unused i960_align; lint dummy core file handlers.
	* cpu-h8300.c:  lint.

	* host-aout.c:  New strategy.  We use common code, include files,
	and data structures to handle the file, but set a few parameters
	from the host's config file (page size, text start addr, etc).
	* libaout.h:  Define HP BSD machine types.
	* aoutf1.h:  Handle reading a.outs with these types.

	* trad-core.c:  Pass the u.u_ar0 value as the negative of the
	virtual-memory-address of the .reg section.  We can't just make a
	section for "all the regs and nothing else" because only GDB knows
	exactly where the regs are (scattered around the upage and stack).
	Clean up memory allocation.  Remove big- and little-endian
	vectors, replace with single vector; this only runs on the host,
	in host byte order.  Replace byteswap routines with aborts in case
	anyone calls them.
	* targets.c:  There's only one trad_core_vec now.
	* aoutf1.h (sunos_core_file_p):  VMA of .reg* now needs to be 0.

Tue Oct 15 08:29:03 1991  John Gilmore  (gnu at cygnus.com)

	* hosts/h-amix.h (free):  Fix prototype.

	* aoutx.h:  Don't use NULL as an integer, for braindead systems
	that declare it as (void *)0.  (From Peter Schauer.)

Mon Oct 14 17:20:47 1991  Per Bothner  (bothner at cygnus.com)

	* opncls.c (bfd_fdopenr):  Add parentheses to avoid reported
	problem with bad Ultrix system headers.
	* aoutx.h (NAME(aout,set_section_contents)):  Try to handle the
	various kinds of alignments for the various kinds of
	magic numbers.

Mon Oct 14 14:23:10 1991  John Gilmore  (gnu at cygnus.com)

	* doc/Makefile:  Don't assume . is on the path (from James Clark).

Fri Oct 11 22:45:14 1991  John Gilmore  (gnu at cygnus.com)

	* Makefile.in:  Avoid Sun Make VPATH bugs.
	* targets.c:  Declare trad_core vectors extern.

Fri Oct 11 13:03:02 1991  Per Bothner  (bothner at cygnus.com)

	* coffcode.h: Moved ALIGN macro to libbfd.h. Removed i960_align.
	* libbfd.h: Moved ALIGN macro here.
	* bout.c (b_out_callback): Replace i960_align by align_power.

	* libaout.h (struct aoutdata):  Added fields page_size,
	segment_size and exec_bytes_size.  These help generic code
	(in aoutx.h and libaout.h) to figure out where to align
	the various segments in a demand paged file.
	* libaout.h (WRITE_HEADER):  Use new (struct aoutdata) fields
	to decide if the exec header counts in a_text (text segment size).
	Also, assume D_PAGED flag is set; don't set it here.
	* bout.c (b_out_callback): Add initialization of
	adata fields page_size, segment_size, and exec_bytes_size.
	* host-aout.c (NAME(host_aout, callback) and
	NAME(host_aout,mkobject): Ditto.
	* i386aout.c (aout386_callback) and new aout386_mkobject): Ditto.
	* newos3.c (newsos3_callback) and new newsos_mkobject): Ditto.
	* aoutf1.c (sunos4_callback) and new sunos_mkobject): Ditto.
	* aoutx.h (NAME(aout,some_aout_object_p)): Don't subtract
	EXEC_BYTES_SIZE from the a_test size; this is only appropriate
	for some systems (mainly sunos), so do it in the callback instead.
	Same routine: Add stuff to the THIS_IS_ONLY_DOCUMENTATION comment.
	* aoutx.h (NAME(aout,set_section_contents): Change the way
	filepos and size of sections are carried out to support
	older styles of demand paged executables.

Fri Oct 11 12:33:36 1991  Steve Chamberlain  (steve at cygnus.com)

	* bfd-in.h: Added more macros to COFF_SWAP_TABLE.
	* bfd.c: Added macros to enable gas to swap coff records.
	* coffcode.h: Make the coff_swap_*_out routines return the number
	of bytes swapped, and cleaned up their prototypes.
	* configure.in: Added ebmon/coff support
	* ecoff.c: Changed null definitions of coff_swap_*_out to conform
	to new prototypes
	* targets.c: Added new entry points for coff swapping

Fri Oct 11 03:01:52 1991  John Gilmore  (gnu at cygnus.com)

	Restructure configuration scheme for bfd, binutils, ld.

	* include/sys/h-*.h:  Move to bfd/hosts/h-*.h.
	* configure.in:  Revise to symlink sysdep.h to hosts/h-xxx.h.
	Change some config names to match other dirs.
	* *.c:  Include bfd.h before sysdep.h, so ansidecl and PROTO()
	get defined first.
	* Makefile.in:  Use -I. to get sysdep.h.  Remove refs to
	* cpu-i960.c:  Strncmp needed a length arg.
	* ecoff.c:  Don't ever call trad_unix_core_file_p from here.
	* i386aout.c:  Remove dead N_TXTOFF override.
	* trad-core.c:  Don't disable the whole file if SUN4_SYS.
	* config/:  Rename some config files to match up h-*.h names.
	Remove all the HOST_SYS definitions from the config files.
	* hosts/h-amix.h, h-i386v.h:  Define POSIX_UTIME, not USG.
	* hosts/h-hp9000.h:  Remove USG comment.
	* hosts/h-rs6000.h:  Include <stdlib.h> for malloc.
	* hosts/h-news.h, h-sparc-64.h:  New config files that had
	previously been kludged in the <sysdep.h> file.

Thu Oct 10 17:54:08 1991  John Gilmore  (gnu at cygnus.com)

	* config/*:  trad-core support is HOST dependent, not target
	dependent.  Target config files only set DEFAULT_VECTOR and/or
	other vector elements.  Exception:  when host-aout.c is in use,
	in which case we're forced to assume we're native (hp, vax,
	tahoe).  Rename XDEPFILES to HDEPFILES.
	* Makefile.in:  Rename XDEPFILES.
	* config/h-sun*:  Don't force static linking.
	* trad-core.c:  Document how to use it nowadays.
	* i386aout.c, newsos3.c:  Clean up.
	* i386coff.c:  Allow 386 coff files to be used as core files too
	(for reading core files from embedded systems).

Tue Oct  8 15:30:39 1991  John Gilmore  (gnu at cygnus.com)

	* Add i386aout.c for a.out support on the i386.

Tue Oct  8 12:18:54 1991  Roland H. Pesch  (pesch at cygnus.com)

	* reloc.c, section.c, syms.c, targets.c: correct info-node
	structure in *doc* comments.
	doc/Makefile: stop hiding complaints from makeinfo.

Sun Oct  6 19:10:06 1991  John Gilmore  (gnu at cygnus.com)

	* aoutx.h (...some_aout_object_p):  Take a third parameter,
	the internal_exec struct, and avoid ever looking at an
	external_exec.  All callers changed to read the entire
	external_exec struct, swap and check its magic number, 
	swap in the whole structure, and pass the swapped-in version to
	* bout.c:  Bring into modern era.  Use single _object_p routine
	for big- aand little-endian.  Provide internal and external
	exec header structs.  Use separate swap-in and swap-out routines.

	* libaout.h:  Move struct internal_exec from ../include/aout64.h
	to here.  Add obj_symbol_entry_size to struct aoutdata.
	* aoutx.h (...some_aout_object_p):  Set obj_symbol_entry_size.

	* ../include/aout64.h:  Change EXTERNAL_LIST_SIZE to
	EXTERNAL_NLIST_SIZE.  Callers changed.

	* bfd.c:  Remove strerror() to libiberty.

	* elf.c:  Remove elf_set_section_contents, use generic one.  Lint.
	* libbfd-in.h, libbfd.c:  Add bfd_generic_set_section_contents.
	* libbfd.c (bfd_generic_{get,set}_section_contents):  Check that
	last byte of transfer, not first byte, is within the section.

	* host-aout.c:  Remove `BSD' archive support.  Lint.

	* archures.c: Rename `struct bfd_arch_info_struct' to `struct
	bfd_arch_info'.  Rename `typedef bfd_arch_info_struct_type' to
	`bfd_arch_info_type'.  All uses changed.
	* reloc.c:  Rename `bfd_reloc_status_enum_type' to
	`bfd_reloc_status_type'.  Rename `bfd_reloc_code_enum_real_type'
	to `bfd_reloc_code_real_type'.  (This seems to be a misnomer,
	it needs a better name.)  All uses changed.
	* targets.c:  Rename `enum target_flavour_enum' to `enum
	target_flavour', and remove the `_enum' from all of the enum
	values themselves.  All uses changed.

	* configure.in, config/h-i386mach:  i386 mach host.
	* config/t-i386-aout:  Use host-aout.c.

	* trad-core.c:  Give it its own xvec's to make it independent
	of other file formats.
	* ecoff.c, host-aout.c:  Remove refs to trad-core.
	* config/t-dec3100, t-hp300bsd, t-tahoe, t-vax:  Define TRAD_CORE.
	* targets.c:  #ifdef TRAD_CORE, include it in the vector.

Fri Oct  4 17:38:03 1991  Steve Chamberlain  (steve at cygnus.com)

	* reloc.c: Extended NEWHOWTO macro
	* ieee.c: Changed the way 8bit pcrel is done
	* cpu-h8300.c: got the registers in the right order

Thu Oct  3 19:39:55 1991  John Gilmore  (gnu at cygnus.com)

	* bfd-in.h:  enum boolean => enum bfd_boolean for SVR4.  Gumby's
	prediction is vindicated!

	* bfd-in.h, libbfd-in.h, doc/Makefile, doc/tolibbfd, doc/intobfd:
	Remove refs to howto.c, since Steve forgot.

Thu Oct  3 07:49:21 1991  Steve Chamberlain  (steve at cygnus.com)

	* elf.c: took the abort out of set_arch_mach so that objdump -i will
	still work. Now allows any architecture/machine to be set.

Wed Oct  2 13:50:35 1991  Steve Chamberlain  (steve at cygnus.com)

	* howto.c deleted and moved code to reloc.c

	* libbfd.h, libbfd-in.h removed $id stuff for real

	* cpu-h8300.c Made it match various different spellings of h8300.

	* archures.c: Took out the first char filter which made it only
	look for a cpu/arch match when the first chars of supplied and
	tested names were the same.
	* targets.c removed oasys stuff, pending someone to fix the bugs
	in it.

Tue Oct  1 12:29:44 1991  John Gilmore  (gnu at cygnus.com)

	* Makefile.in, configure.in, targets.c, elf.c:  Add preliminary
	ELF support good enough for GDB.
	* configure.in, config/h-amix, config/t-m68k-elf:  Handle
	m68k-cbm-svr4 host and target.
	* config/t-m68k-coff, t-m88k-coff, t-m88k-aout:  Make files nonempty
	so `diff' and `patch' can cope.

Tue Oct  1 11:24:31 1991  Steve Chamberlain  (steve at cygnus.com)

	* archures.c: removed texinfo error

	* init.c: added texinfo hooks, and removed initialization error

	* libcoff-in.h, libbfd-in.h removed $id field so cvs can merge
	without complaints.

Tue Oct  1 05:02:53 1991  John Gilmore  (gnu at cygnus.com)

	* cpu-i960.c:  Avoid numerical count of initializers.

	Vax Ultrix changes from David Taylor <taylor@think.com>:
	* host-aout.c:  Make little-endian vector really little-endian.
	* configure.in:  Separate vax and tahoe cases, handle ultrix.
	* config/t-vax:  Add trad-core.o.
	* config/h-vaxult:  New host system.

Mon Sep 30 15:13:46 1991  Steve Chamberlain  (steve at cygnus.com)

	* bfd-in.h VERSION, change version number to 0.18, this makes a
	gap, but now is the same as the linker version number.

	* cpu-a29k.c, cpu-i386.c, cpu-m68k.c, cpu-mips.c, cpu-vax.c,
	cpu-h8300.c, cpu-i960.c, cpu-m88k.c, cpu-sparc.c: added. These
	files will eventually contain processor specific bits for bfd,
	like strange relocation information and dis/assembly.  So far only
	the H8 has been even partially done.  This work also ties in with
	the change in handling architectures.

	* amdcoff.c: (a29k_reloc) fix error message.

	* aout-f1.h: (choose_reloc_size) now calls bfd_get_arch to
	discover the architecture of the bfd. (sunos4_callback) calls the
	function bfd_set_arch_mach rather than stuffing stuff directly
	into the bfd. (sunos4_write_object_contents), changed names of
	accessor functions.

	* aoutx.h: (set_arch_mach) now calls bfd_default_set_arch_mach to
	setup the environment.

	* archive.c: (bfd_slurp_coff_armap) coff archives always have the
	headers in big endian format, regardless of the endianess of the
	host or target.

	* archures.c: totally changed. Now an architecture is represented
	with a pointer to an info structure rather than an enumerated type
	and a long. The old info is available as two elements in the
	structure.  Future enhancements to architecure support will
	involve pointers to methods being placed into the info structure.

	* bfd.c: changed the definition of the bfd structure for the new
	architecture stuff.

	* bout.c: (b_out_set_arch_mach) changed to use the new
	architecture mechanism.

	* coffcode.h: (coff_set_arch_mach, coff_set_flags) changed to use
	the new architecture mechanism.

	* configure.in: added h8 stuff.

	* ieee.c: too many changes to note.  Now ieee files written with
	bfd gas and ld can be read by gld and ieee only linkers and

	* libbfd.c, libbfd.h: changed prototype of bfd_write.
	* newsos3.c: (newos3_callback) now calls bfd_set_arch_mach rather
	than fixing the structure directly.

	* oasys.c: (oasys_object_p) now calls bfd_default_set_arch_mach rather
	than fixing the structure directly.

	* opncls.c: (new_bfd) makes sure that bfd_init has been called
	before opening a bfd.

	* srec.c: (srec_set_arch_mach) now calls bfd_default_set_arch_mach
	rather than fixing the structure directly.

	* targets.c: (target_vector) now by defining SELECT_VECS (perhaps
	in the t/hmake file) a user can select which backends they want
	linked with bfd without changing the source.

	* init.c: new, looks after initializing modules.

	* howto.c: for future use, will allow an application to work out
	what cookie to use as a handle on a relcoatio howto.
Mon Sep 30 13:31:15 1991  John Gilmore  (gnu at cygnus.com)

	* srec.c:  Better error checking, partly from Peter Schauer.

	(ISHEX):  Define new macro for checking supposedly hex characters.
	(pass_over):  Treat as EOF any S-record line that:
	    *  doesn't have hex in either size character
	    *  produces a size larger than 0x7F
	    *  has an unrecognized type number

Wed Jul 31 09:53:52 1991  John Gilmore  (gnu at cygint.cygnus.com)

	* all files:  update copyright notices for GPL version 2.
	Install header comments and attribute most modules to their
	authors.  BFD's name is now officially "Binary File Descriptor",
	so remove any conflicting pejoratives.

	* ../include/bfd.h (struct bfd_target): Added new field
	"align_power_min" which contains the minimum alignment for a

	breaking a future test.

        *../include/i386coff.h : fixed typo in type field with size

	* i386coff.c icoff.c m88k-bcs.c ecoff.c ../include/bfd.h : Added

	* Merge in changes from gdb-3.95 release.
	Makefile.in:  Allow hmake and tmake files to add OFILES.
	bfd.c:  support specific targets as well as searching.  When
	searching, take default target in preference to others.
	bfd.doc:  typos
	ieee.c, oasys.c:  Avoid using the "tdata" macros left of assignment.
	liba.out.h:  Don't hard-code file offsets; use N_ macros for them.
	libbfd.h:  Support specific targets as well as searching.
	opncls.c:  Support specific targets as well as searching.
	targets.c:  Search is short-circuited if default target matches.
	liboasys.c, libieee.c:  Undo bothner changes that make macros
	work to the left of assignment, but which depend on the
	representations of different pointer types being the same.

Fri May 24 18:56:52 1991  Steve Chamberlain  (steve at cygint.cygnus.com)

	* i386coff.c: created.

Mon May 20 17:12:17 1991  Steve Chamberlain  (steve at cygint.cygnus.com)

	* everything: Removed sysdep.h from bfd.h and put back into files
	from which it was split out. Now 64 bit version is built with a
	-DHOST_64_BIT="long long" on the compile line.

Fri May 17 19:35:26 1991  Steve Chamberlain  (steve at cygint.cygnus.com)

	Changed all the [get|put][name] routines to use  [get|put]_[size
	in bytes].  

	Put in support for 64 bit work. Now two versions of bfd may be
	generated, according to the state of TARGET_64_BIT, one which is
	32 bit only, and one which is 64/32 bits. 
	Created new back end 'demo64' to test 64 bit functionality.

	Renamed some files to work on DOS.

	* archive.c: lint * bfd.c: prototypes and lint. * ecoff.c: added
	64bit transfer 	* icoff.c: added 64bit transfer * ieee.c: name

	be called b.out.c * coffcode.h: used to be called coff-code.h, now
	64bit ized. * demo64.c: 64 bit a.out back end


Thu May 16 16:02:07 1991  Steve Chamberlain  (steve at cygint.cygnus.com)
	from bothner
 	* libieee.h: Make ieee_data and ieee_ar_data macros usable
	on LHS of assignment, even when using old compilers.
	* liboasys.h: Ditto for oasys_data and oasys_ar_data.
	* m68kcoff.c: Add enum-to-int casts to accomodate old compilers.
	* newsos3.c: Fix definitions of SEGMENT_SIZE and TEXT_START_ADDR.
	* opncls.c: Define S_IXUSR, S_IXGRP, S_IXOTH if undefined.
	* targets.c: Add declaration of newsos3_vec.

Mon May 13 10:03:29 1991  Steve Chamberlain  (steve at cygint.cygnus.com)

	* aout.c: fixxed some of the problems with filepos calculation.
	(swap_ext_reloc): fixed problem with creation of relocs.
	(aout_set_section_contents): fixed filepos problem

	(coff_real_object_p) cleaned up, added MIPS. (coff_object_p)
	cleaned up. (coff_write_object_contents) cleaned up. 

	* ecoff.c: Totally different. Now supports ecoff fully.

	* icoff.c: fixed problems in relocation callout.

	* libcoff.h: (struct icofdata) removed hdr structure from tdata.

	* m68kcoff.c: updated target vector.

	* sunos.c: (choose_reloc_size) added: (sunos4_callback) calls
	choose_reloc_size. (sunos4_write_object_contents) now calls
	choose_reloc_size so outputs relocs correctly, also calculates the
	size of the sections correctly.

Fri May 10 16:58:53 1991  John Gilmore  (gnu at cygint.cygnus.com)

	Merge Per Bothner's changes to modularize BFD a.out a bit.

	* libbfd.h, libbfd.c (bfd_generic_get_section_contents):  Add.
	* ieee.c:  Cast enums to int before comparing them, for brain-
	dead compilers.
	* coff-code.h:  Remove coff_get_section_contents, and use the
	generic one instead.

	* aout.c:  Derive new module from sunos.c, containing generic
	support code for all kinds of a.out files.

	* sunos.c: Remove all code that goes in aout.c.  Split out
	machine dependent followup in sunos4_object_p into
	sunos4_callback.  Use JUMP_TABLE(aout) for the transver vector,
	and redefine only the names we CHANGE, not all the names.  Drop
	the little-endian vector, and rename the vector as sunos4 rather
	than generic.

	* b.out.c:  Use aout.c routines for most of the work.  Slight
	changes for the new regime.  Remove close_and_cleanup and
	get_section_contents in favor of generics.  New transfer vector

	* newsos.c:  New support for Sony NEWS, another a.out format.

	* ecoff.c:  Remove close_and_cleanup.  New tvec regime.
	* icoff.c, m88k-bcs.c:  Add write_contents to tvec.
	* ieee.c, oasys.c:  Remove close_and_cleanup, add write_contents
	to tvec. 
	* opncls.c (bfd_close):  Call format-dependent write_contents
	routine, if writing, before calling target-dependent
	close_and_cleanup routine (which is now always generic, I think).
	* srec.c:  Use bfd_alloc instead of malloc.  Remove
	close_and_cleanup and move code from it to
	srec_write_object_contents.  Add write_contents to tvec.
	* targets.c:  Remove a.out little vector, replace a.out big
	vector with SunOS vector.  FIXME:  Need Vax support again now.

	* libbfd.h:  Add write_contents format-dependent-vector to the
	bfd_target vector.  Supply a generic close_and_cleanup routine.
	* liba.out.h:  Handle the new aout.c split.  Add prototypes for
	all routines defined in aout.c.  Rename "sunos" things to "aout"
	things.  Add a few fields where needed for various formats.
	* Makefile.in:  Add aout.c and newsos.c.

	* archive.c, ieee.c, oasys.c:  Lint.

Fri May 10 12:34:48 1991  Steve Chamberlain  (steve at cygint.cygnus.com)

	* ../include/bfd.h
	changed forward declaration struct stat; to reduce warnings. Changed
	comment on bfd_h_<x>_x.

	* ../include/m68kcoff.h, ../include/intel-coff.h,
	Now there are two incarnations of relocs, linenos and syments. One for
	internal digestion, and one full of char arrays for I/O. The original
	names have gone to detect errors.

	* Makefile.in, m68kcoff.c, targets.c
	Test new structure code with a 68k coff implementaion

	* coff-code.h, icoff.c, coffswap.c, libcoff.h 
	Fixed all the places where there were problems with the size and
	alignments of structures on disk and structures in memory. #ifed out
	all the code in coffswap.c, since it should be done using the target
	swap routines now.

Thu May  9 11:00:45 1991  Steve Chamberlain  (steve at cygint.cygnus.com)

	* ieee.c (do_one, ieee_slurp_section_data): now supports the load
	multiple reloc command.

	* sunos.c (sunos4_set_section_contents): Made it so that sections
	are always padded to their alignment size.

Sat May  4 15:49:43 1991  John Gilmore  (gnu at cygint.cygnus.com)

	* archive.c, bfd.c, coff-code.h, opncls.c, sunos.c, trad-core.c:
	Clean up types and such (saber C problems).
	* ecoff.c:  Clean up types and such.  Remove routines that are
	not used.  Fix up reading and swapping of shorts from files.

   Notes on bfd-0.5.2-patch1a, from Per Bothner:

	* a.out.vax.c: Remove two bogus "static" from prototypes.

	* ecoff.c: Got rid of lots of non-working junk (that had
	been copied directly from coff-code.h).
	Updated to be consistent with updates to icoff.c and coff-code.h.

	* libbfd.h: Added definitions for S_IXUSR, S_IXGRP, and S_IXOTH
	if they're missing (as they are in (BDS-4.3-based) NewsOS-3).

	* sunos.c (n_txtoff): (Re-)Add support for sony. This is a kludge,
	but until the target_vector is automatically generated,
	it's as good as any. Note that the text offset is the only
	difference between NewsOS and SunOs (including magic numbers).
	(Most of the sunos_* routines should to renamed bsd_*
	and move to a bsd.c file. Then (and when the target_vector
	is automatically generated) it might make sense to create
	a separate Sony target.)

	* sysdep.h: Don't declare fread and fwrite. Causes trouble
	on some systems, and doesn't help on others.
	Similarly, only define X_OK if not already defined.

	* trad-core.c: Don't include sys/stat.h - at least
	on NewsOS 3, it has already been included.

Tue Mar  5 01:47:57 1991  John Gilmore  (gnu at cygint.cygnus.com)

	* coff-code.h (bfd_coff_swap_sym, bfd_coff_swap_aux,
	bfd_coff_swap_lineno):  Export the routines that byte-swap COFF
	symbol tables if necessary when reading them in, so gdb can use
	them.  Add "bfd_coff_" to the names so they won't conflict with
	names in calling programs.  FIXME-soon:  if coff-code.h is
	included in two BFD modules, this will cause duplicate
	definitions; the routines should be exported to a separate,
	common, module (probably along with a mess of other ones).

Sat Mar  2 12:11:26 1991  John Gilmore  (gnu at cygint.cygnus.com)

	Improve modtime support.

	* bfd.h:  Add boolean mtime_set, and declare bfd_get_mtime.
	Remove #define for bfd_get_mtime.  Remove gratuitous comment.
	* bfd.c (bfd_get_mtime):  New fn, caches mtime, gets if not cached.
	BUG:  archive members still do not get correct mod times.

	Improve floating point support for core files.

	* sunos.c (struct core):  Change void *fpa_dummy to double fp_stuff.
	(sunos4_core_file_p):  Create a second registers section in the
	core file, called ".reg2", for the float registers.

Thu Feb 14 15:49:06 1991  Gumby Vinayak Wallace  (gumby at cygint.cygnus.com)

	* many changes to improve archive handling; found a logic flaw in
	  bfd_check_format which only just happened to work by cooncidence.

Thu Feb 14 07:53:16 1991  Steve Chamberlain  (steve at cygint.cygnus.com)

	* bfd.c (bfd_perform_relocation): fixed to use output_offsets
	* bfd.h: changed type of udata in asymbol to void *, like it
	should be. Added bfd_reloc_dangerous enum member.

	* coff-code.h: Fixed it so that internally generated symbols get
	their values relocated correctly in all cases. Removed calls to

	* icoff.c: Not understanding the destination symbol of a reloc is
	not a failure any more, just 'dangerous'. This allows linking of
	b.out and coff images.

	* sunos.c: Cleaned up the way that ZMAGIC section sizes are

Tue Feb 12 13:25:46 1991  Steve Chamberlain  (steve at cygint.cygnus.com)

	* sunos.c (translate_to_native_sym_flags): fixed
	sym_pointer->n_value so that symbols on the way out get their
	section relative values calculated correctly.

	* coff-code.h (mangle_symbols): fixed problem where tags were not
	being relocated for structs, enums, unions. Also various lints.

Mon Feb 11 19:52:26 1991  Gumby Vinayak Wallace  (gumby at cygint.cygnus.com)

	* archive.c (get_elt_at_filepos): system_call_error returned

Sun Feb 10 23:18:40 1991  Gumby Vinayak Wallace  (gumby at cygint.cygnus.com)

	* Resolve the use of no_error and system_call_error.
	  The bfd library itself now will never set bfd_error to

	  The code still needs to be combed to make sure all the error
	  codes are correct.  I suspect they are not always set correctly.

	* The names of all the messages have _ prepended because the sun
	  bundled compiler can't distinguish from a macro which takes an
	  argument and the same identifier in a non-macro context.

	* The reason for the above being that entry points which used to
	  be trampoline functions are now just macros which expand to a
	  direct call through the bfd's xfer vector.

	* (../include/intel-coff.h) F_AR32WR: fix this constant.  Why
	  must gas have its own version of everything (the gas version
	  had the correct value)

Tue Feb  5 11:46:53 1991  Steve Chamberlain  (steve at cygint.cygnus.com)

	* b.out.c: Added patches supplied by chrisb@mipon2.intel.com to
	properly support i960 architecture and output correct reloc stuff.

	* bfd.h: added prototype for bfd_printable_arch_mach, added

	* coff-code.h: Applied patches from chrisb to support i960
	architecture, zero relocs and swap them correcly and conditionally
	compiled the timestamp.

	* sunos.c: Made the default section alignment 2^3 so that doubles
	are done properly. Fixed the same reloc bug that was in b.out.c

	* sysdep.h: Now compiles on a Posix box

Wed Jan 30 21:36:26 1991  John Gilmore  (gnu at cygint.cygnus.com)

	* icoff.c:  Fix comment on big-endian version.
	* coff-code.h:  Make HAS_RELOC really work (it's backwards from
	F_RELFLG).  Set F_AR32WR in output files if little endian

Tue Jan 29 20:56:10 PST 1991 steve@cygnus.com
	* archures.c fixed =/== typo
	* sunos.c added architecture stuff for output. Fixed
	bug where files where vma(data) != size(text) 
	were processed wrong.

	* coff-code.h added a lint cast

	* (../include/a.out.sun4.h) fixed it so zmagic

	* libbfd.h fixed includes

Mon Jan 21 11:53:51 PST 1991 steve@cygnus.com
	* bfd.h	changed name of alignment entry in sec_struct to
	alignment_power, because of conflicting uses within bfd.
	Now it should be obvious that it's a 2**n alignment
	specifier. Removed start_pad, end_alignment, block, minsize,
	output_file_alignment, subsection_alignment and original_vma fields.
	Added align_power() macro. Fixed bfd_section_alignment
	acessor macros. Added bfd_symbol_same_target macro.

	* bfd.h changed definition of asymbol to contain pointer to
	owning bfd, removed target dependencies.

	* cache.c took out print statements, put in BFD_ASSERT calls.

	* coff-code.h various lints, corrected linenumber output
	functionality. Added support for new style asymbols and

	returning false.

	* sunos.c added support for n_other field. Braced the howto table so
	that it won't be affected by any lengthing of the howto struct typedef.

Wed Jan 16 01:55:53 1991  John Gilmore  (gnu at rtl)

	* ChangeLog:  Started ChangeLog for BFD.
	* ToDo:  Create file for suggestions.

	* Makefile:  Support easy loading into Saber C.
	Add dependencies for icoff.o and bcs88kcoff.o.
	Rename coff.c to coff-code.h.  Change callers.

	* bfd.c (bfd_check_format):  Allow the check_format routines
	to return the desired target vector, rather than just a Boolean.
	bfd.h (bfd_check_format):  Change function pointer return type.
	archive.c (bfd_generic_archive_p):  change callee.
	b.out.c (b_out_little_object_p, b_out_big_object_p,
	b_out_real_object_p):  change callee.
	libbfd.c (_bfd_dummy_target):  Dummy routine replacing bfd_false
	in check_format transfer vectors that need a filler.
	libbfd.h (bfd_generic_archive_p, _bfd_dummy_target):  Fix decls.
	bcs88kcoff.c:  change callee.
	coff-code.h (coff_real_object_p, coff_big_object_p):  change callee.
	icoff.c:  change callee.
	sunos.c (sunos4_object_p, sunos4_core_file_p):  change callee.

	* libbfd.c (zalloc):  It should actually zero the storage!
	This was commented out for some reason.

	* libbfd.h:  Add malloc, xmalloc, memcpy, and fatal decls.
	This is so callers can avoid <stdlib.h> which doesn't exist
	on older systems.

	* bfd.c (map_over_sections):  Add debugging code, since I
	noticed the section count for sunos core files was bad, but only
	GDB had detected the problem.

	of how many files are open.  Centralize the opening of files
	and be sure bfd_open[rw] actually try to open the file.  Evade
	linked list initialization problems.

	* b.out.c, coff-code.h, opncls.c, sunos.c:  lint.

	* coff-code.h (coff_slurp_symbol_table):  Null-terminate symtab names.
