Compile Definition from Computer & Internet Dictionaries & Glossaries
A Glossary of Internet & PC Terminology
When writing a computer program , the instructions are entered into a text file in the same way that information is keyed into a wordprocessor document. The compile activity validates the instructions entered into this text file converts them into instructions that the operating system can understand. The programmer initiates the compile by entering a command.
Internet Glossary
To transform a program written in a high-level programming language from source code into object code. Programmers write programs in a form called source code. Source code must go through several steps before it becomes an executable program. The first step is to pass the source code through a compiler, which translates the high-level language instructions into object code.

The final step in producing an executable program -- after the compiler has produced object code -- is to pass the object code through a linker. The linker combines modules and gives real values to all symbolic addresses, thereby producing machine code.

A compiler is a computer program (or set of programs) that transforms source code written in a programming language (the source language) into another computer language (the target language, often having a binary form known as object code). The most common reason for wanting to transform source code is to create an executable program.
