import address table (IAT)
After my study, the address of IAT of an executable is known at compile/link time, other than known at load/runtime, right?
I have this confusion because if an EXE needs to link with an import library, some of the instructions in the import library contains pointers to the address to the IAT entries of the EXE (right?) which needs to be fixed-up during load time. So, if IAT address is not known at compile/link time, import library will not be able to contain pointers to the address of IAT.
IAT address of an EXE is some default address which has the same values for all EXE?
thanks in advance,
