First I must thank those who pointed me to the Portable Formats
Specification for the purpose of understanding object files.
Now my new problem - in a test binary that I'm looking at, there are
two sections of the type "Processor Specific Semantics" and, unless
I'm miscalculating the string table offset, these sections are named
null and "01.01" (sans quotes). I don't understand either the name or
how to interpret the actual Processor Specific Semantics.
Secondly, or is it thirdly, there are several sections of type
PROGBITS which have flags = 06. 06 isn't mentioned as a valid flag.

Oops, I WAS miscalculating the string section offset. Now the
Processor Specific sections are named "nu.version" and
"nu.version_r"... I still don't know where to find the precise meaning
of these, or the contents...
