I'm trying to get more information about the linking loader in In particular, I'd like to access the information generated by the dynamic loader, so I can see where various shared objects get loaded and how the loader handles forking a new process. Most of the code I've found has been in assembler for a specific processor, and I'd like something more generic. The binutils code seem to be more for ld rather than it's dynamic cousin, and a lot of binutils use BFD which just adds another layer.

In my best Obi-Wan Kenobi voice :-

The code you are looking for is from glibc in the elf directory.
