But do you know how to use them to their greatest possible advantage? The book begins with a detailed and comparative account of linking and loading that illustrates the differences among various compilers and operating systems. On top of this foundation, the author presents clear practical advice to help you create faster, cleaner code. You'll learn to avoid the pitfalls associated with Windows DLLs, take advantage of the space-saving, performance-improving techniques supported by many modern linkers, make the best use of the UNIX ELF library scheme, and much more. If you're serious about programming, you'll devour this unique guide to one of the field's least understood topics. Key Features Includes a linker construction project written in Perl, with project files available for download. Explains the Java linking model and how it figures in network applets and extensible Java code. Helps you write more elegant and effective code, and build applications that compile, load, and run more efficiently. Readership practicing programmers, computer language designers and developers, and students.

I understand new loaders are very rarely designed, but anyway, this book is of no help when they do. The book itself is not necessarily outdated, because the principles haven't changed, but the description of some file formats is certainly outdated. Thus there is some prerequisite knowledge the author assumes you already have. I think an Operating Syst Although very old, this is probably the book on the present subject. I think an Operating Systems course and at least a basic understanding of assembly language and related knowledge like registries, counters, stack, etc.

Although I am a practicing C programmer and I consider I have the aforementioned knowledge, there were still parts of the book I didn't understand.

What I didn't like is that you can't read only the parts of the book that interests you, because the author is often referencing previous information from the book. But still very useful and a great introduction to linkers and loaders.

I wish I had read this book 10 years ago when I was still working with a custom loader implementation. Sep 18, Jan Kroken rated it really liked it Given that it is now around 20 years old, and contains a lot of historical references, the relevancy of the content is so-so.

Still a great book on the subject. Nov 12, David Lindelof rated it really liked it You may have written hundreds, maybe thousands of programs, but if you are like most programmers then everything that happens after the compilation is kind of mysterious. Why does the compiler have to create object files?

What are they? What is this so-called linker who combines those files into a library, or an executable? What's its purpose? John Levine's book answers those questions, and more.

It carefully explains step by step what happens from the moment the code is compiled until it actually runs on the machine; and what's more important, it makes it very clear why things are as they are today. In the end, the book presents recollection of dirty hacks from existing and dated implementation, however with explanations why there're these hacks in the first place.

But I'd rather have a book on design of new linkers and loaders, or at least in-depth analysis of at least one loader. I understand new loaders are very rarely designed, but anyway, this book is of no You barely can understand linkers by this book since it falls into implementation details of each specific OS and CPU too early. I understand new loaders are very rarely designed, but anyway, this book is of no help when they do.

John Levine's book answers those questions, and more. Collective Wisdom from the Experts is "The Linker You may have written hundreds, maybe thousands of programs, but if you are like most programmers then everything that happens after the compilation is kind of mysterious. Collective Wisdom from the Experts is "The Linker Is not a Magical Program", and this book goes a long way towards taking that magic away.

It carefully explains step by step what happens from the moment the code is compiled until it actually runs on the machine; and what's more important, it makes it very clear why things are as they are today. I was recommended this book in a reply to a Stackoverflow question , and I am not disappointed. The book goes occasionally perhaps a little bit too much into technical details, which I felt could be safely skipped.

Perhaps a case study, i. Until I read this book I simply did not understand how a program actually ran on my computer.

A few details are still a bit fuzzy, but now I feel much better equipped for dealing with obscure linker errors or custom linker scripts. Highly recommended for any programmer who wants to get to the bottom of things.

Feb 28, Joshua Goller rated it liked it. This is a hard book for me to rate. On one hand, I found this book to be really hard to read, but at a second glance, I can't really say there is anything wrong with it except for a two points: It's 15 years old.

This is a pretty big deal to me because it's hard to tell what's still useful and what has been deprecated. There' This is a hard book for me to rate. There's ample discussion of Unix System V, for instance, and some now-mostly-deprecated file formats, like a.

It feels sort of haphazardly organized. Some of the sections have odd or off-topic subsections, and I think it could be better organized. If you're thinking of reading this book, my advice is this: I didn't know what linkers or loaders do going into this book, and while I am still confused about some aspects of them, I feel like I have a better understanding of what happens between object code and executable than I did before.

However, while much of the material is still relevant today the author does discuss PE and ELF pretty extensively , there is still much ground to cover since its publication. Jan 11, Mike rated it it was ok Shelves: I tried this out because of Greg Wilson's recommendation at http: The book was a little too specific for me and I couldn't get much out of it. My takeaway is that the basic principles of linkers and loaders are straightforward enough but that every single specific implementation is a collection of nasty hacks influenced by the operating system and hardware.

I came away thinking that I tried this out because of Greg Wilson's recommendation at http: I came away thinking that there must be a better set of references online by now; if I had to guess I would start off at Wikipedia.
