I think it was, let me test it out:

Executable & Linking Format Binaries(ELF)

- result in binaries that can be linked with other binaries at run time
   (libraries)

- ELFs linked at run time are assigned unique locations in memory and
   the processor each time it runs.

- can be statically linked to other binaries(libraries) at compile time

Good so far?

Steve
