I talked about this before but i still dont get how to use this.Do i drag a dol file on to this or something.--Wiier 19:37, 16 October 2009 (UTC)

This is a command line program. You may also look at ELF to DOL Converter. --Crayon (talk) 19:40, 16 October 2009 (UTC)
When i went to command prompt and tpyed this in [-i boot.dol] tan enter it says "error opening boot.dol!" help please.--Wiier 13:43, 21 October 2009 (UTC)
I'm sure this is because the DOL file is not in the path of doltool.exe. The easiest way to do so is to copy the boot.dol file to the folder where doltool.exe is. --Crayon (talk) 14:18, 21 October 2009 (UTC)
I just tried that and it didnt work.--Wiier 16:44, 21 October 2009 (UTC)

Let's start with a new approach.
1) Create an empty file in your doltool.exe folder, normally it's C:\devkitPro\devkitPPC\bin. Name it get_info.bat.
2) Put the following text inside the file:

@echo off
doltool -i boot.dol

3) Copy your boot.dol inside your doltool.exe folder.
4) Double click on get_info.bat.
What do you see now? -Crayon (talk) 17:36, 21 October 2009 (UTC)

I see:

      BSS ADRESS: 8008FB00
      BSS SIZE:   0075DE0
      ENTRY POINT: 800400
      TEXT SECTION 0:OFFSET 00000100 ADDRESS:800400 SIZE:00075600
      DATA SECTION:00075700 ADDRESS:80079600 SIZE:00016500

So every thing is working, you are seeing the info for your dol file. So instead of -i, just use the good option in the batch file for what you need to do. --Crayon (talk) 21:42, 22 October 2009 (UTC)

Is it this the same way for the other commands?--Wiier 14:29, 23 October 2009 (UTC)

Yes --Crayon (talk) 13:55, 24 October 2009 (UTC)
