The wiki is being retired!
Documentation is now handled by the same processes we use for code: Add something to the Documentation/ directory in the coreboot repo, and it will be rendered to https://doc.coreboot.org/. Contributions welcome!
bios_extract is a GPL tool for extracting individual modules from proprietary BIOS/UEFI images.
This utility should work on most modern UNIX-like operating systems; it has been tested on at least Linux and FreeBSD. It is very useful for extracting PCI Expansion ROMs from onboard devices, like IGP graphics, raid controllers, nic boot roms, etc, for inclusion in a coreboot image.
$ git clone http://review.coreboot.org/bios_extract $ cd bios_extract $ make $ sudo make install

We use the same coding style as coreboot (which is basically the Linux kernel coding style).
