The GNU Binutils are a collection of binary tools. The main ones are

  • ld - the GNU linker.
  • as - the GNU assembler.

Most of these programs use BFD, the Binary File Descriptor library, to do low-level manipulation. Many of them also use the opcodes library to assemble and disassemble machine instructions.

This port may be used as a replacement for the system binutils and support features from the latest versions of GCC.

For cross-compilation, see the devel/cross-binutils port.
