I am trying to understand the process of dynamic linking, in detail.
For the purpose, I tried .got section of ELF.
q.1 : I read in ELF Standard 1.2(Appendix) that Global offset table's
format and interpretation are processor specific. Can some body please
help me, why we don't have standard for this as well and why it has to
be processor specific?
q.2 : Can someone point to a tutorial or some thing, where I can get
some understanding of operations of a dynamic linker on a live
process, examining the contents of .got, .got.plt sections etc in each
step (at least for Intel)?
