Whatever your programming language, whatever your platform, you probably tap into linker and loader functions all the time. But do you know how to use them to their greatest possible advantage? Only now, with the publication of Linkers & Loaders, is there an authoritative book devoted entirely to these deep-seated compile-time and run-time processes.
Linkers and loaders have been part of the software toolkit almost as long
as there have been computers, since they are the critical tools that permit
programs to be built from modules rather than as one big monolith.
