readelf is a program for displaying various information about object files on Unix-like systems such as objdump. It is part of the GNU binutils.

readelf and objdump[edit]

objdump has a similar function but with different features like disassembling. The main difference is that readelf does not depend on BFD and helps to check if BFD works.[1]
