In Link-and-Go type of loader, the instruction is read line by line, its machine code is obtained and it is directly put in the main memory at some known address. That means the assembler runs in one part of memory and the assembled machine instructions and data is directly put into their assigned memory locations. After completion of assembly process, assign starting address of the program to the location counter. In this scheme some portion of memory is occupied by assembler which is simply a wastage of memory.
