What exactly are linker scripts?

I wasn't able to find a good explanation by searching.

A linker script basically tells the linker what objects to link and how.
Allowing you to specify link addresses, executable format and which segments to put in the executable and their order.

Is using a linker script necessary?

How to write one? Any good tutorials?

That link may provide a better understanding.

To answer your first question, no they are not allways needed, but they do provide a great amount of control over your final executable.

The main purpose of the linker script is to describe how the sections in the input files should be mapped into the output file, and to control the memory layout of the output file. Most linker scripts do nothing more than this. However, when necessary, the linker script can also direct the linker to perform many other operations, using the commands described below.
