when i type 'man elf' on my freebsd system i get :
NAME
elf - format of ELF executable binary files

SYNOPSIS
#include <elf.h>

DESCRIPTION
The header file <elf.h> defines the format of ELF executable binary
files. Amongst these files are normal executable files, relocatable ob­
ject files, core files and shared libraries.

An executable file using the ELF file format consists of an ELF header,
followed by a program header table or a section header table, or both.
The ELF header is always at offset zero of the file. The program header
table and the section header table's offset in the file are defined in
the ELF header. The two tables describe the rest of the particularities
of the file.

etc
