ELF object file access library
'Libelf' lets you read, modify or create ELF files in an architecture-independent way. The library takes care of size and endian issues, e.g. you can process a file for SPARC processors on an Intel-based system. This library is a clean-room rewrite of the System V Release 4 library and is supposed to be source code compatible with it. It was meant primarily for porting SVR4 applications to other operating systems but can also be used as the basis for new applications (and as a light-weight alternative to libbfd). In 2019, the domain went down and links now point to the wayback machine.
