I want to cite following specifications:

@article{Committee2014 ,
    author = {Tool Interface Standards},
    file ={:E$\backslash$:/mem{\_}layout{\_}mgr/latex/papers/ELF{\_}Format.pdf:pdf},
    journal = {Specification, Unix System Laboratories},
    title = {Executable and Linkable Format (ELF)},
    url = {http://scholar.google.com/scholar?hl=en{\&}btnG=Search{\&}q=intitle:Executable+and+Linkable+Format+(+ELF+){\#}9},
    year = {2001}


    author = {NTU},
    title = {GCC and Make Compiling, Linking and Building C/C++ Applications},
    howpublished = "\url{https://www3.ntu.edu.sg/home/ehchua/programming/cpp/gcc_make.html}",
    year = {2013},


    author = {Steve Chamberlain},
    title = {Using ld},
    howpublished = "\url{https://www.math.utah.edu/docs/info/ld_3.html#SEC13}",
    year = {1994}

One result looks like this:

The problem is that I do not have any persons as authors, e.g. Committee2014 and gcccompileprocess. How would you cite those examples properly?

    It can't be correct to use the entry type @article for the entry with key Committee2014. Separately, what do you mean by the entries "do not have any authors"? The first two appear to have so-called corporate authors, and the third would appear to have an author named "Steve Chamberlain". Please clarify. – Mico Jul 26 '17 at 21:41

    Besides Mico's observations, I could add that for corporate authors you can use braces so that it is treated as a block by bib(la)tex (that is, an extra set of braces, e.g. author = {{Tool Interface Standards}},. – gusbrs Jul 26 '17 at 22:34
