Section 10: Program Structure and Compilation Issues
The overall structure of programs and the facilities
for separate compilation are described in this section. A program
is a set of partitions, each of which may execute in a separate
address space, possibly on a separate computer.
explained below, a partition is constructed from library units
Syntactically, the declaration of a library unit is a library_item
as is the body of a library unit. An implementation may support a concept
of a program library
(or simply, a “library”), which
and their subunits.
Library units may be organized
into a hierarchy of children, grandchildren, and so on.
This section has two clauses: 10.1
compile-time issues related to separate compilation. 10.2
issues related to what is traditionally known as “link time”
and “run time” — building and executing partitions.
