ELF Runner

The ELF runner is the runner responsible for launching components based on standard executable files (ELF format).

For a detailed explanation of how processes are created, please see //zircon/docs/program_loading.md.

Using the ELF Runner

The ELF runner receives instructions from the program section of the component manifest. The binary field holds the path to an executable file in the package the manifest comes from, and the args field holds any additional string arguments that should be provided to the process when it is created.

This is an example manifest that launches bin/echo with the arguments Hello and world!:

    "program": {
        "binary": "bin/echo",
        "args": [ "Hello", "world!" ],
