I've been looking at the BFD library in order to get an idea
how difficult it would be to extract a function or symbol from
an object file and write it out to another (new) object file.
Does anyone have any information that they can point me towards
so that I can get a handle on doing this? I read all the docs
and some of the code to be able to iterate over the symbols, but
I'm having trouble writing out the new object file when I want
to pull out an arbitrary function.
Also, if anyone knows of a source of good information on the
relocation entries, please pass that along too.

Thanks in advance...

thecode you extract, too. -John]
