Friday Q&A 2012-11-30: Let's Build A Mach-O Executable at 2012-11-30 17:59
This is something of a followup to my last article, dyld: Dynamic Linking On OS X, in which I explored how the dynamic linker
dylddoes its job. This week, I'm going to recreate the function of both the compiler and the static linker, building a Mach-O binary completely from scratch with only the help of the assembler.
Friday Q&A 2012-11-09: dyld: Dynamic Linking On OS X at 2012-11-09 15:51
In the course of a recent job interview, I had an opportunity to study some of the internals of
dyld, the OS X dynamic linker. I found this particular corner of the system interesting, and I see a lot of people having trouble with linking issues, so I decided to do an article about the basics of dynamic linking. Some of the deeper logic is new to me, so sorry in advance for any inaccuracies.
