JLoc was written by John Fine. It is available from here.
- "This program is a linker/locator for use when you need more control over placement of sections within the image, than a standard linker provides."
JLoc can be tricky to use for first timers. Carefull reading of the documentation is required. Its not a get-up-and-go linker like all the other linkers. JLoc requires you to write a custome script for each "executable" image you want to link. JLoc gives you flexibility over HOW the object files are linked, regarding loaded addresses and so-forth.
