You get eu-readelf from:

$ sudo apt-get install elfutils

I was just wondering why you would use one over the other ?


On Linux, there are two implementations of readelf:

  • readelf from GNU binutils
  • eu-readelf from elfutils

The tools from elfutils were written to be smaller, faster, and more featureful than those in binutils.
