I have several questions

(1) Where can I find documentation on object code formats
        produced by Borland and MicroSoft C++ compilers?

(2) With the trend of MicroSoft using dynamic link libraries
        (i.e. .dll files) is there a concept of an executable
        anymore? it seems that there is less and less static
        linking and more dynamic by the operating system.

(3) Is there any source code for linkers?


p.s. It would be nice to have some object code/linker
          information in the faq or in your catalog. Just a thought.
