Assumption[edit]

This seems to assume a C/C++ style compilation process. Aren't symbol tables more broadly applicable than that? AftonL 16:06, 26 September 2006 (UTC)

Hash table[edit]

The symbol table is created using the hash table data structure. Preceding unsigned comment added by 117.239.68.10 (talk) 09:21, 5 July 2012 (UTC)

Object files[edit]

"This symbol table is part of every object file. During the linking of different object files, it is the linker's responsibility to handle any unresolved references."
