Quirks and tricks that involve the Executable and Linkable Format
About the Book
This book is going to be built as a collection of articles on ELF and surrounding topics, that were previously published on my blog.
I plan on picking the most useful and complete articles, and re-edit in a more connected form, improving grammar and form, so to provide an immediate guide for developers who have to deal wih ELF quirkness.
Over the past few years I've written about ELF files in general, PIE (Position Independent Executables), ASLR (Address Space Layout Randomization), CoW (Copy-on-Write) pages and symbol collisions. The current form is not very easy to consult, so the idea behind this book is to re-edit all the content provided in a form that is suitable for consultation, and easier to read.
