    I want to understand how the C's executable a.out is organised
    into segments. Which segments the varibles are put into according to
    their declarations. which Linux commands are used to check these
    details. Kindly anyone suggest any books or documents or link which
    contains details of the above.

    Check your compiler's documentation, this stuff is implementation specific.

    Your man pages and google.

    and receives from the helpful posters here:

    Off topic. Not portable. Cant discuss it here. Blah, blah, blah.

    You need documentation specific to your operating system. gcc runs on
    hundreds of different systems, and even on a single system can often
    be configured to use different formats, so you're not likely to find
    the kind of information you want in the documentation for gcc itself.
    If it's Linux you're using, try a Linux newsgroup.
