Segementation & Paging

Segementation & Paging

Post by Amri » Wed, 07 May 2003 15:06:31

Hello All,

What are the important differences between
Segementation and paging.

I have read that segementation uses registers for segements,
in that case the object code of a particular C file cannot be
used in architecture where segementation is not followed.

So in paging architecture machines there would not be segement
registers, Is it right?

i think if the mem requirements in large chunk is needed then
segementation method is optimal rather than paging.

Can mem objects span across the page boundaries.
