Post subject:  Elf Loading & Terminal Emulation

Hi all. I have rough drafts of two tutorials: http://wiki.osdev.org/User:Joeeagar/ElfLoading and http://wiki.osdev.org/User:Joeeagar/TerminalEmulation. The ELF tutorial is a very simple program loader (no support for dynamic symbols). I'd appreciate feedback on both articles; I have a few questions on where to take them:

  • Should the ELF tutorial cover reading the sections and symbol tables? Or does that belong in its own tutorial?
  • The ELF tutorial doesn't cover dynamic linking (which I've not implemented myself yet). I think that should be its own tutorial; that sound right?
  • The terminal emulation tutorial is incomplete. Right now it's more of a reference page. I'd appreciate feedback on additional content, structure (should it be a series of tutorials?), etc.

Mad ups, they look pretty good.

Only thing I can come up with off the top of my head is that in the ELF loader page you just say that 32 and 64 bit headers are different without then telling us which of the two you're demonstrating.

But yeah, good stuff. We can always use more high-quality content up in there, thank you.
