Binary rewriting without relocation information

Abstract 

A binary rewriter that can provide complete code coverage without relocation information is provided, together with a method of performing such rewriting. The method can include processing a binary file as an original binary file. The method can also include disassembling the binary file to provide a disassembled binary file. The method can further include rewriting the disassembled binary file without relocation information to provide a rewritten binary file. The rewriting can provide a physical transformation in a recording medium relative to the binary file in the recording medium prior to the rewriting. The processing the binary file, disassembling the binary file, and rewriting the disassembled binary file can be performed by a particular machine.
