Power Architecture 64-Bit ELF V2 ABI Specification

This repository hold the source for the Power Architecture 64-bit ELF Version 2 ABI specification for the OpenPOWER Foundation. The PDF and HTML generated from the specification/ directory build a document that describe the ABI used by Linux on Power systems when running in little endian mode.

To build this project, one must ensure that the Docs-Master project has also been cloned at the same directory level as the ELFv2-ABI project. This can be accomplished with the following steps:

  1. Clone the master documentation project (Docs-Master) using the following command:
$ git clone
  1. Clone this project (ELFv2-ABI) using the following command:
$ git clone
  1. Build the project with these commands:
$ cd ELFv2-ABI
$ mvn clean generate-sources

The online version of the document can be found in the OpenPOWER Foundation Document library at 64-Bit ELF V2 ABI Specification.

The project which control the look and feel of the document is the Docs-Maven-Plugin project.
