Hi Dan,

I think that the simplest change we could make would be to have BFD detect object files with a magic number of 0x188 and then have it issue an error message along the lines of "please decompress this file before passing it to BFD". What do you think ?

This makes sense, so I've attached a patch that does just this.

Let me know when/if you incorporate it to the cvs tree, and when the patch that you proposed makes it in.

I have now checked both your patch in and mine as well.
