    Memory Representation of compiled C Program

    How will the c program be represented in the memory?

    What will be in the object code? will it contain address of all variables and memory segments info

    could anyone explain?

    Hi Jagdish!

    I know a bit about what you ask because of my little assembly programming background.
    You can start with such stuff too. Just search for assembly programming. You will have very good idea of all this stuff.
    Good luck!

    Yes, it's represented as machine-code, which will contain the absolute or relative addresses of variables, along with initialization data for variables which are initialized (non-zero).
