Is it possible to find all of the library dependencies of a Windows DLL under Linux?
The Portable Executable (PE) format is a file format for executables and DLLs in Windows operating systems.
You may be surprised that, PE is a modified version of the Unix COFF (Common Object File Format).
You can find dependent DLLs using
objdump utility with
-p argument in Linux. It will print a lot of information, you need to filter
DLL keyword like below:
$ objdump -p libMyCustom.dll | grep DLL DLL vma: Hint Time Forward DLL First DLL Name: ADVAPI32.dll DLL Name: GDI32.dll DLL Name: KERNEL32.dll DLL Name: msvcrt.dll DLL Name: SHELL32.DLL DLL Name: USER32.dll DLL Name: WS2_32.dll
