loader
Last modified: Friday, February 14, 2003 

An operating system utility that copies programs from a storage device to main memory, where they can be executed. In addition to copying a program into main memory, the loader can also replace virtual addresses with physical addresses.

Most loaders are transparent, i.e., you cannot directly execute them, but the operating system uses them when necessary.
