            Bug ID: 42236
           Summary: Add documentation and help text for using response
           Product: tools
           Version: trunk
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P
         Component: llvm-readobj
          Assignee: unassignedbugs at nondot.org
          Reporter: jh7370.2008 at my.bristol.ac.uk

Many of the LLVM binary utilities support taking response files containing a
list of arguments (e.g. llvm-readobj @response.txt). However, for most tools,
this feature is not mentioned in the help text or the documentation. We should
add it to both.

I have filed this against llvm-readobj, but the principle also applies to at
least llvm-objdump, llvm-symbolizer, llvm-addr2line, and probably others that I
haven't yet investigated.

See also bug 42233 which covers this issue for llvm-nm (although in that case,
it is in the help text).
