084f2db8c6 Instead, the linker simply said something like: This program calls some functions within a particular shared object, so I'll just make a note of which shared object these functions are in, and continue on. At the end there should be a single executable file. This stack frame contains information such as the address from which the function was called and where to jump back to when the function is finished (return address), parameters, local variables, and any other information needed by the invoked function. [ 0] NULL 00000000 000000 000000 00 0 0 0. W.7 PROCESS LOADING. Copies program arguments (e.g., command line arguments) onto the stack. Other object file formats are listed in the following Table. For Windows dumpbin utility (coming with Visual C++ compiler) or more powerful one is a free PEBrowse program that can be used for the same purpose. Symbol table holds information needed to locate and relocate a programs symbolic definitions and references. The portion of the executable file containing the text segment is the text section.
Programs that are linked statically are linked against archives of objects (libraries) that typically have the extension of .a. For filename.cxx, the xx must both be literally character x and filename.C, is capital c. In the following Figure, two views of an ELF file are shown: the linking view and the execution view. Each process believes that its virtual addresses start from 0. W.11 SYMBOL NAME RESOLUTION. For gcc, the static option can be used during the compilation/linking of the program. O (extra OS processing required) o (OS specific), p (processor specific). The runtime linker is contained within the C runtime library.
