Description: Binutils is a collection of binary utilities for the GNU Operating System (OS). The utilities of this software provide users a set of programming applications for creating and managing binary programs, object files, libraries, profile data, and assembly source code. The main utilities contained within this software are the GNU assembler (gas), and the GNU linker (ld). The software also contains other utilities that work with the binary files that are created as a part of the software development toolchain. This technology is typically used in conjunction with compliers such as the GNU Compiler Collection to provide a foundation for a software development toolchain. This technology utilizes the GNU Binary File Descriptor library (libbfd), which is included with the software, to support the various object formats supported by libbfd and to perform low-level programming manipulation tasks. The technology was originally built to run on `Unix-like` systems, but has support for Windows systems.

This technology does not require the use of a database.
