Hi Nick,

Thanks for your e-mail. I really need such a feature because some libraries on Linux (for example Intel/IPP 4.1) contain some external functions like names and without correct sizes. It's impossible to debug and profile that functions. As you know, there are only object-members so far :( And therefore there is no another way for correction.

As for patch, unfortunately I have no enough time to select good option names, interface and so. But implementation, I am sure is very simple. So, I'd like to get your proposals before. Thanks in advance.

Hi Victor,

I'd like to have the following feature in objcopy:
1) set FUNCTION attribute for some symbol or other attributes
2) set/correct size for some symbol (e.g. function)

In other words, I'd like to have simple command-line interface to correct symbol table of objects.

This would indeed by a nice feature. Please feel free to write a patch that implements it, although if you wanted to submit it we would first need a copyright assignment to the FSF.

Is there a particular reason why you want such a feature ? Perhaps there is another way of solving the problem you are facing, possibly by editing the assembler files before they are converted into object files.
