2.3 Addresses in Memory

Locations represent addresses in memory if a section is allocatable; that is, its contents are to be placed in memory at program runtime. Symbolic references to these locations must be changed to addresses by the SPARC link editor.

2.3.1 Relocation Tables

The assembler produces a companion relocation table for each relocatable section. The table contains a list of relocations (that is, adjustments to data in the section) to be performed by the link editor.
