Intel didn't even have a processor when Relocatable Object Module was being generated
Intel didn't even have a processor when Relocatable Object Module was being generated in JCL decks on early IBM's using core memory. Heck, they may be older than that.. Any way the idea was that the ROM could be linked into a calling module - adding a base address to its relocatable address. Do the research ... —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk • contribs)
Based on this discussion(2006) of JCL card formats for IBM systems, I'm pretty sure the format you're talking about is a different one that happened to be called by the same name. JulesH 08:45, 12 May 2007 (UTC)
Technical Forum:Technical Design Labs Relocatable Object Module Code Format, Volume 02 Number 11, November 1977, Byte Magazine, ..format used by Technical Design Labs, originated by Neil Colvin. This text was given to us at the TDL booth at the National Computer Conference in Dallas last June, and offered as documentation of a standard which is in use by that firm, and is reportedly being examined for adoption by two other major software vendors in the personal computing marketplace.
