The ELF shell library

The ELF shell library is the binary manipulation library of the ELF shell. It contains primitives for static on-disk modifications and consultation of binary programs linked within the Executable & Linking Format (ELF) 32bits or 64bits. The main features of the ELF shell library are : * Full API for all ELF structures. * ET_REL injection into ET_EXEC/ET_DYN ELF files. * ALTGOT redirection technique, for external functions redirections on RISC architectures. * ALTPLT redirection technique, for external functions redirections. * CFLOW redirection technique, for internal functions redirections. * EXTPLT partial relinking technique, for adding unknown extern symbols to the program. * EXTSTATIC static file relinking technique. * Partial SHT reconstruction technique. * PaX protection attributes access in RW mode. * Core files manipulation.


More information about apt-get remove

Advanced Package Tool, or APT, is a free software user interface that works with core libraries to handle the installation and removal of software on Debian, Ubuntu and other Linux distributions. APT simplifies the process of managing software on Unix-like computer systems by automating the retrieval, configuration and installation of software packages, either from precompiled files or by compiling source code.

apt-get is the command-line tool for handling packages, and may be considered the user's "back-end" to other tools using the APT library.

apt-get remove is identical to install except that packages are removed instead of installed. Note that removing a package leaves its configuration files on the system. If a plus sign is appended to the package name (with no intervening space), the identified package will be installed instead of removed.
