A couple of years ago there was a conference presentation (FOSDEM?) about what a program does before reaching main(). The presenter (a Brit IIRC) went pretty fast, did not go into too much detail and it took him 30-40 minutes. I think the study was done on a BSD. Maybe somebody can provide a link, the video is online, but Google resists to help me...



That sounds like Brooks Davis' talk that he has given at a few conferences:

Exactly! The name of the speaker helps to find what I was looking for https://mirrors.dotsrc.org/fosdem/2017/Janson/hello_world.vp...
