- Subject: Including binutils version information in a binary
Off the top of my head I can think of three reasonable ways to include
linker/assembler version information in an object file.
1) A symbol.
2) A .note entry.
3) A .comment entry.
Which of these methods (or any better suggestions) would be most likely to
be accepted as a patch?
