Thank you guys for your reponses. I wonder if my former request is too
hard to be practical so I just go directly to the problem that I
couldn't get rid of.


    My advisor wants me to modify an executable by inserting several
instructions (to the text section). You are only given
executable. Jesus, what can I do? Does it sound a reasonable task?
Man, it could be a Ph.D. thesis. Any idea to hack this bullshit?
Thanks.


    The platform is Linux on PowerPC or Solaris on Sun.
[This is what's known as binary patching. Back in the Heroic Era of
the 1950s and 1960s, any programmer could squint at a compiled program
and patch in a few instructions, sticking in a few jumps if need be
if there wasn't room. It's not THAT hard. -John]
