There's an omf2coff tool available but is there a tool that will convert an omf library to a coff library?

Hi Odyssey,

Can you post your OMF lib file to the forum? Maybe, I can help you.

It's not a specific file I want to convert. I was trying to see if I can use other linkers with borland c++. I've had sucess with programs that don't use the C standard library but I think I will need to convert the static libs to coff format.

vortex,

Been doing some research and I think I have an idea on how I can convert an omf lib to a coff lib. Object files can be extracted from a library with the tlib utility. I wrote a hello world program that only used the puts function so I thought to link this app with golink I would only need to convert the puts function to coff format but then I realised that the puts function used a million other functions too, so I think the best thing to do would be to convert all the object files in the lib to coff format. :)

Is this omf2coff tool still available somewhere?
