Description Aaron W. LaFramboise 2004-07-01 21:10:39 UTC
The .DEF format probably should be documented in the manual.  The 
documentation is already in the dlltool.c source code, but its not nearly as 
useful for users there as in the manual.  The only other publically availible 
documentation for the format is in the MSVC manual.

I will do this eventually (if noone else does first), but I'd like to not 
forget about it before then.

        PR binutils/249
        * doc/binutils.texi (def file format): New node.
        (dlltool): Use the tool name as the @chapter name, like all the
        other binutils.  Use @file{.def} throughout for consistency.
