Abstract
Linking and loading are the final steps in preparing a program for execution. This paper assesses issues concerning dynamic and static linking in traditional as well as single-address-space operating systems (SASOS). Related loading issues are also addressed. We present the dynamic linking model implemented in the Mungi SASOS and discuss its strengths and limitations. Benchmarking shows that dynamic linking in Mungi carries less overhead than dynamic linking in SGI`s Irix operating system
