    Windows binary format

    I know that linux uses ELF and A.out format for the binaries. I was wondering if anyone knows the format that windows uses, and any documentation on the format of the binaries. Thanks

    Windows "executable" files come in two formats: the New Executable (NE) format for 16-bit programs, and the Portable Executable (PE) format for 32-bit programs. Both formats are well-known and documented; search Google for more information.
