For original article see ibid., vol.9, no.4, p.51-62, (Aug. 1989). The author points out that the relative addressing capability of a given architecture allows one to create position-independent code, that is, code (and data) that can be mapped anywhere in memory. The author notes that this capability is required to create shareable libraries, a feature that is available in the SunOS 4 and Unix System 5.4.<>
