QUESTION

I create assembler programs that are not relocatable. My programs consist of exactly one source file. Must I use the linker to link this file and create an absolute object file?

ANSWER

When you use the A51 assembler and you have a single source file (that has no relocatable segments), you are not required to use the linker to link and locate your program. The output from the assembler is an absolute OMF51 object module.
