3.7 String Tables

A string table is a section which contains null-terminated variable-length character sequences, or strings, in the object file; for example, symbol names and file names. The strings are referenced in the section header as indexes into the string table section.

A string may appear multiple times and may also be referenced multiple times. References to substrings may exist, and unreferenced strings are allowed.
