Link Editor

At this point, the link editor has constructed a set of tables:

  1. An absolute memory address for each data area. This address is used to relocate references to data in this area.

    File LC Address
    A 0 0000
    A 1 1000
    B 0 0300
    B 1 1200
    C 0 0500
    C 1 1600

  2. External symbols and their addresses:

    Name Address
    MAIN 0024
    GRAPH1 0340
    SIN 0520
    EXP 0620

The next step is to convert the code and data to absolute form.
