Hi all,

I understand that we can use bfd to view or manipulate a file but is it possible to create an ELF file using bfd?

I had a look at bfd.h, and it would seem to be the library of choice for elf. from what I saw libbfd can manipulate objects rather than files, so you create your elf object, then use nomal file io to create your files.
there doesn't seem to much in the way of explanations out there which is probably because it is a commercial project.
