Meaning of SECTION in English


In executable file terms, section is a part of file which usually contain code, data or resources.

Some sections contain code or data that application declared and uses directly, while other sections usally created by the linker, contain information vital to the operating system.

During program execution, the PE header maps each section into memory and assigns attributes to each section, based on the information stored in the section table.
