Produces Motorola 32-bit format (32-bit S-records) output. It generates one output file for each load region in the image.

You can specify the base address of the output with the --base option.


The following restrictions apply:

  • Not supported for AArch64 state.
  • You cannot use this option with object files.
  • You must use --output with this option.

Considerations when using --m32

If you convert an ELF image containing multiple load regions to a binary format, fromelf creates an output directory named destination and generates one binary output file for each load region in the input image. fromelf places the output files in the destination directory.


For multiple load regions, the name of the first non-empty execution region in the corresponding load region is used for the filename.

A file is only created when the load region describes code or data that is present in the ELF file. For example a load region containing only execution regions with ZI data in them does not result in an output file.


To convert the ELF file infile.axf to a Motorola 32-bit format file, for example outfile.bin, enter:

fromelf --m32 --output=outfile.bin infile.axf
