Branch: MAIN
CVS Tags: HEAD
Changes since 1.14: +1 -0 lines
add link to attributes document

1 pspax -u 0
2 errno = 0; uid = strtol(optarg, NULL, 10); if (uid == 0 && errno != 0) error("invalid value");
3
4 add support for RPATH checking with -nL ?
5
6 we truncate 64bit types in many places to (unsigned long) ... do we really
7 care though ? this would be an issue if:
8 - host is 32bit
9 - object being analyzed is 64bit
10 - object has symbols which is larger than 32bits
11
12 scanelf does not check offsets of DT's when scanning PT_DYNAMIC ... if a bogus
13 ELF had a PHDR of type PT_DYNAMIC which claimed to be of size say 1 and had an
14 offset just shy of the end of the file, we'll probably crash ...
15
16 dumpelf does not do string checking in very very verbose mode. it assumes the
17 strings are sane when dumping the sections. only way around this is to check
18 everything single byte and print it out a character at a time ... sucks ...
19
20 we look at the section named ".text" for TEXTRELs when we should look at the
21 PT_LOAD program headers which are marked Executable.
22
23 we don't handle versioned symbols well. take an ELF with debugging and do:
24 scanelf -s '' elf
25 notice that glibc symbols generally have version info. then search for that:
26 scanelf -s foo@@ver elf
27 no hits as all of our symbol comparisons ignore the versioning info.
28
29 allow digging into ARM_ATTRIBUTES (.ARM.attributes) sections
30 - need info on the section layout
31 - figure out how to integrate cleanly (target-independent driller)
