SO File Extension

What is a(n) SO file??

The file extension .SO is used to indicate that the file contains a shared library, also known as Shared Object. The shared library is a program that can be loaded into another process or application.

The SO file extension has been around since 1989 when it was introduced by Sun Microsystems. It's primarily used for programming languages like C++, C#, Objective-C and Java.

An ELF shared library is an executable program with its own set of programming instructions. These instructions are called "machine code." These files are typically loaded at startup time by the operating system to handle system calls and exception handling.
