Using LD_DEBUG to examine application startup (linking best practices part 3)

Part 3 of the series on best practices for linking C/C++ applications is up. This sections focuses on using LD_DEBUG to examine application startup.

The paper talks about the options LD_DEBUG=init which shows the initialisation and finalisation stages of an applications run, and LD_DEBUG=bindings which shows how the symbols are bound between the application and libraries.
