SYNOPSIS

chrpath [ -v | --version ] [ -d | --delete ] [ -r <path> | --replace <path> ] [ -c | --convert ] [ -l | --list ] [ -h | --help ] <program> [ <program> ... ]

DESCRIPTION

chrpath changes, lists or removes the rpath or runpath setting in a binary. The rpath, or runpath if it is present, is where the runtime linker should look for the libraries needed for a program.

OPTIONS

-v | --version
  Display program version number
-d | --delete
  Delete current rpath or runpath setting
-c | --convert
  Convert the rpath setting into a runpath setting
-r <path> | --replace <path>
  Replace current rpath or runpath setting with the path given. The new path must be shorter or the same length as the current path.
-k | --keepgoing
  Do not fail on first error, but process all arguments before returning the error.
-l | --list
  List the current rpath or runpath (default)
-h | --help
  Show usage information.

EXIT STATUS

0 If all operations were successful
>0 if one of the operations failed. A failing operation terminates the program unless -k is specified.

BUGS

This program cannot create an RPATH tag if the ELF does not have one, and it can only replace an RPATH with one of equal or shorter length. (Moving ELF sections following a lengthened string table would be difficult and error-prone at best, and is sometimes outright impossible due to issues like limited ranges in jump instructions.)

AUTHOR

The chrpath program was written by Petter Reinholdtsen <pere@hungry.com>, based on works by Geoffrey Keating <geoffk@ozemail.com.au> and Peeter Joot <peeterj@ca.ibm.com>.

This manual page was originally written by Tollef Fog Heen <tfheen@debian.org>, for the Debian GNU/Linux system (but may be used by others).
