Understanding ldd output
Posted on 2007-03-17
Can anyone explain me the output of ldd command. For example, when I run the ldd command on iptables executeable, I understand iptables is using libdl.so.2 and libc.so.6 shared libraries. But I am looking for a good explanation on the addresses mentioned just beside each shared objects.
Please explain what that addresses indicate....
# ldd /sbin/iptables
libdl.so.2 => /lib/libdl.so.2 (0x40034000)
libc.so.6 => /lib/i686/libc.so.6 (0x40037000)
/lib/ld-linux.so.2 => /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0x40000000)
