    Absolute Loader is also known as boot loader or boot manager. The loader 's task is to execute file in the OS that had been copied from the hard disk or any storage device to the primary memory. This type is the simplest and most functional. At the target selected by the header of the file, loader stacks the file into memory. And relocating Loader, that distributes a program or application in any position of the memory, however, unlike AL, RL decides where it will be placed in the OS. For more info, plz link here
