Assembly and Linkage
Assembly is the final step in the translation to machine code. Instruction specifications are converted into the actual patterns recognized by the control unit of the computer, and these patterns are placed into a memory image. Some of the instruction specifications normally contain references to other items in the program; during assembly, these references are replaced by the addresses in the memory image of the referenced items.
