I correct myself and agree on your poit about "compiled language".
Although "written" is true, I wanted to stress "compiled" part to get
executables. Also, this compiled code can not be machine independent
java-byte code etc. Thus I wanted ELF here.
So these 2 texts are what I wanted to be a matching set.
* executables written in an interpreted language such as POSIX shell
* ELF binary executables compiled from languages such as C and C++
If you say adding compiled before "languages" is better, I will do so.
I removed ulink for ELF for all around here and left one in the later
section on dh_shlibdeps to make PDF look nicer.
(FYI: Even some text data generation can be arch-dep process if it is
not written carefully for Unicode range characters such as BOM-less
