_ There is one "elf.c32", so perhaps checking its source code?

_ Inside "com32/samples/" there are sample modules.

_ There is an "elflink" git branch.

_ 5.00 Changelog.

Note #1: The following linked pages contain, among others, links to the 
zytor git repo; it is currently (and hopefully temporarily) not 

Note #2: The following linked pages might contain outdated information. 
Please do not assume the information is current and still valid; it 
might not be.

 This GSoC page includes a Wiki and code, among others.

Other than the source code in Syslinux, this GSoC page seems to be the 
only additional info about the current c32 modules (ELF). Considering 
that Google Code is shutting down, perhaps it would be worth forking / 
copying the information in the wiki area of this GSoC site, its 
downloads, the code...

This GSoC project could be exported to GitHub and/or to Sourceforge 
(both support this procedure), or to the Syslinux wiki.

Comments? Suggestions?
