comment Relation between “ lines of the longest working program ” in a language and familiarity with it?
So do you know approximately how many lines means being excellent, good, fair, or unfamiliar with a language? I don't count my programs, but I would like to have some sense of how many in order to fill out the application.

comment Role of linking, object files and executables
@Dean: Thanks! What about assembly? If an assembly program does not call any other library, is assembling enough without linking?

comment Role of linking, object files and executables
Thanks! (1) If a program has nothing inside main(){}, what library does the program need to link to? (2) In this case, do you mean that linker's job is to transform an object file to an executable file? (3) How object files and executable files are different? Any references? I only know they are both ELF format in Linux.

Also is ld.so part of the "loader" piece of Linux kernel that reads in executables? Does ld.so run during loading the executables or during running executables

Thanks! In "you can call ld to actually toss the program in RAM and set up the registers, although you can call it to tell the program how to compile so that it says I want to load registers x, y, and z and start in memory location 0x0000FFFF....", do you mean "ld" is just a linker for compilation, or also a loader for starting running an executable?

Thanks! So is "program loader" in my questions the same thing mentioned in your third paragraph? Is it also done by "ld" in linux?
