4.4. Using Other Binary Tools

The binutils provide many binary tools other than a linker and an assembler. For a complete list of these tools, see Table 4.1, “Tools Included in binutils for Red Hat Developer Toolset”.
To execute any of the tools that are a part of binutils, run the command as follows:
scl enable devtoolset-4 'tool [option...] file_name'
See Table 4.1, “Tools Included in binutils for Red Hat Developer Toolset” for a list of tools that are distributed with binutils. For example, to use the objdump tool to inspect an object file, type:
scl enable devtoolset-4 'objdump [option...] object_file'
Note that you can execute any command using the scl utility, causing it to be run with the Red Hat Developer Toolset binaries used in preference to the Red Hat Enterprise Linux system equivalent. This allows you to run a shell session with Red Hat Developer Toolset binary tools as default:
scl enable devtoolset-4 'bash'

Note

To verify the version of binutils you are using at any point, type the following at a shell prompt:
which objdump
Red Hat Developer Toolset's objdump executable path will begin with /opt. Alternatively, you can use the following command to confirm that the version number matches that for Red Hat Developer Toolset objdump:
objdump -v
