> One question: when memory exhausted during linking, can it use swap file
No and yes ... "no" as in, "no the linker cannot be changed to use the
swap file when it runs out of memory", but "yes" as in "yes, the swap
file will be used if there is insufficient memory available".
Ie using the swap file is not a feature that needs to be added to the
linker. Rather it is a feature that is already present in the operating
system and one which is used automatically.
