How to create a section in ELF?

netorib94

I'm reading about ELF file format and trying to create one without any library, to really understand how the things works--I'm looking for actual codeexamples using it. In fact, I was able to create one by setting all neededheaders and put some op code to it print a string on std out. But how to create the string table and then the sections, to be honest, I have no code to show because I didn't understand even how to create the string table myself and set it to sh_name. I'd love any code example how to do this. I've search a lot on internet without luck. Even libelf by example doesn't show how to do it directly the explanation actually I get it's same as from standard elf document.
