Binary utilities: bfd gas gprof ld
GNU Binutils is a collection of tools for working with binary files. Perhaps the most notable are "ld", a linker, and "as", an assembler. Other tools include programs to display binary profiling information, list the strings in a binary file, and utilities for working with archives. The "bfd" library for working with executable and object formats is also included.
