Description Frank Ch. Eigler 2007-03-10 20:06:24 UTC
There appears to be no documentation of $ORIGIN in the glibc/ld.so documentation.
Comment 1 Brooks Moses 2013-12-20 21:18:58 UTC
We should also document the $LIB and $PLATFORM substitution patterns at the same time.

(Note that these _are_ documented in the ld.so manpage from the Linux manpages project.  The $ORIGIN pattern, but not the other two, is documented as part of the ELF ABI document as well.)
