Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I think I could not explain what I need exactly. I have a GAMESS code which is a quantum chemistry code. It is in parallel and I have compiled it with gfortran and gcc on debian 7. Some other programs can match with GAMESS to provide user some more information. One of these programs is NBO. NBO has two version, binary and source code. I have bought its binary version. It is a static library with the name of nbo6.i8.a. When I want to link this library to other object files of GAMESS, I need to define its address. The problem is here exactly. If I install GAMESS in the root's home and put the NBO library there, then only root user can execute it. If I placed it in the home user, then he/she could have access to the NBO library and can distribute it. If it is possible please guide me.
since your executable is statically linked against nbo6.i8.a, then the file nbo6.i8.a is not needed at run time and therefore it doesn't even need to exist on the machines where your executable is being run.
Yes, I know that when I run a statically-linked program, I don't need its libraries. This is true for all users of my machine. They don't need the libraries too:-)
It is sufficient for them to copy the binary file and paste it on any other machine, and use the program illegally.
Are you sure that the command "chmod -r program_name.exe" prevent the users to copy it, even when the file present in their home?
