Anže Žitnik (2012) Object Format Manager. EngD thesis.
The main goal of this thesis was a detailed study of the ELF object file format and development of a Java package for mapping the contents of ELF files to Java objects. We reviewed various object file formats and examined the ELF format in greater detail. We studied the possibilities of converting executable files from one file format to another. We made a Java package that enables reading, writing, modifying and creating new ELF files without an existing base. We developed a method for editing character strings in executable object files. We used the package to develop an application that provides an overview of ELF files' contents and, with support of the before mentioned method, semi-automatic translation of strings in executable programs.
