Overview#Loadable Module is a Software library that may be loaded into RAM
There is only one form of this library but it can be used in two ways.
- Dynamically linked at run time. The libraries must be available during compile/link phase. The shared objects are not included into the executable component but are tied to the execution.
- Dynamically loaded/unloaded and linked during execution (i.e. browser plug-in) using the dynamic linking loader system functions.
