image file identification

I am currently porting software from the ALPHA to the HP Integrity (I64).

On the ALPHA, I was able to programmable read and write to the ‘image file identification’ and ‘image file build identification’ fields in the header record of an executable.

On the I64 with the ELF executables have been unable to determine how to do this.

Can you tell me how to access the ‘image file identification’ and ‘image file build identification’ fields in the ELF executable on the I64?

Re: image file identification

ELF headers are sort of easier, because there is a standard definition for them.
They are not OpenVMS specific.

Do you want the ID for the 'current running image', or just a tool to get at it?

Anyway, check out the prior topic below.
I'm pretty sure it answers your question and then some.
