How can I get ELF formatted object files from COFF objectfiles?My target system is Solaris 2.5.1 on Intel PC. The Solaris linker does not operate with COFF files. ( or I don't know how to do that )

Recompile your original source and generate the ELF .o files at that point. So far as I know, there is no COFF2ELF utility (unless you write it). You could also try using a different linker that accepts COFF (like GNU's) but that opens up a whole new can of worms when you try to debug since the Sunsoft debugger will also be incompatible. :-(
