I've been using some binary tools to inspect and learn about ELF binary files. If you are unfamiliar with the Executable and Linkable Format (ELF), here's the standard which is the main reference I've been learning from.

Here's some tools that I've found useful:

  • dumpelf - This is probably my favorite. It's part of the Gentoo PaX Utilities. Description from the Gentoo PaX Utilities guide: "With the dumpelf utility you can convert a ELF file into human readable C code that defines a structure with the same image as the original ELF file."
  • readelf - Good for displaying header information.
  • nm - Good for displaying symbol information.
  • objdump - Displays headers, symbols, relocation information, disassembly etc.

If you know of other good information on ELF or tools regarding it let me know.

This is a smart blog. I mean it. You have so much knowledge about this issue, and so much passion. You also know how to make people rally behind it, obviously from the responses.
