99 // This program is a utility that works like binutils "objdump", that is, it
1010 // dumps out a plethora of information about an object file depending on the
1111 // flags.
12 //
13 // The flags and output of this program should be near identical to those of
14 // binutils objdump.

9 // This program is a utility that works like traditional Unix "readelf",
10 // except that it can handle any type of object file recognized by lib/Object.
11 //
12 // It makes use of the generic ObjectFile interface.
13 //
14 // Caution: This utility is new, experimental, unsupported, and incomplete.
9 // This is a tool similar to readelf, except it works on multiple object file
10 // formats. The main purpose of this tool is to provide detailed output suitable
11 // for FileCheck.
12 //
13 // Flags should be similar to readelf where supported, but the output format
14 // does not need to be identical. The point is to not make users learn yet
15 // another set of flags.
16 //
17 // Output should be specialized for each format where appropriate.
