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.

I've been a Free Software developer for over ten years, contributing bits to literally hundreds of projects. I'm currently involved in Gentoo Linux, but I still contribute when having time to other projects such as libav, Munin and unpaper.

Over the past years I kept writing on my blog about technology and Free Software, and a couple of years ago I launched Autotools Mythbuster as an open guide to GNU autoconf, automake and the like.
