This is gelfload, a portable runtime ELF loader. It lets you use ELF on platforms that don't natively support ELF! Some special properties of gelfload: * To integrate gelfload well into platforms that /do/ support ELF, gelfload ELF files should have their interpreter set to /usr/bin/gelfload-ld * gelfload ELF files may refer to gelfload .so files by their standard name, or they may use symbolic names to refer to host libraries: * libhost_<name> refers to the library <name> on the host, e.g. libhost_libc.so.6 or libhost_msvcrt.dll * libhost_.so refers to: * if possible, all libraries loaded by gelfload in the host, including certainly at least libc * otherwise, libc or the nearest equivalent, e.g. msvcrt.dll * libloader_dl.0 refers to the loader's builtin library providing dlopen() and dlsym() gelfload is still in development, and doesn't yet support all ELF relocations. Some tests are in test/. They're tested primarily on GNU/Linux, however the test named testdl uses only standard libc functions and should work on any host system (including e.g. Mac OS X).
