In my previous talk on 13th January, I gave an overview of ABIs and linkers. In this follow-up, I’ll cover dynamic linking, dynamic loading and debuggers in a similar spirit. As before, the emphasis will be identifying a number of problems suffered in real software as a consequence of poor specification or poor tooling in these areas, where these problems could perhaps be helped using a more rigorous approach. The content will be accessible to anyone vaguely familiar with the C programming language.

This talk is part of the Semantics Lunch (Computer Laboratory) series.
