Name        : elfutils
Product     : Fedora 13
Version     : 0.149
Release     : 1.fc13
URL         : https://fedorahosted.org/elfutils/
Summary     : A collection of utilities and DSOs to handle compiled objects
Description :
Elfutils is a collection of utilities, including ld (a linker),
nm (for listing symbols from object files), size (for listing the
section sizes of an object or archive file), strip (for discarding
symbols), readelf (to see the raw ELF file structures), and elflint
(to check for well-formed ELF files).

Update Information:

This update fixes some bugs in the eu-readelf and eu-strings utilities.  It also improves eu-strip -g to support the new ".gdb_index" debugging section correctly, and adds the new -F switch to eu-addr2line.  The libdw library now supports the new DW_OP_GNU_implicit_pointer extension to the DWARF format.
