I'm looking for literature about the ld (Unix) linker.
I'd like to understand the algorithm on which that linker is based.

Can someone help me ?

Thanks in advance,

[All the Unix linkers I've seen have been conventional two-pass linkers.
They make one pass over the input to find all the module sizes and symbol
values, then a second pass to do the relocating and symbol resolution and
create the output module. -John]
