i was wondering if there is a way to read the ELF headers under linux (from the current running executable not other elf files)? like its done on windows by getting the value in ebx at startup (which points to PEB) and reading the image base from it.

how can it be done with linux elf files?

thanks.

You read the file in argv[0] and interpret it.
