Also known as lazy loading
, the capability to specify which components
of a program
and which components are not called into memory by default when a program is first launched. Dynamic function loading is a method of speeding up the initial load
time of a program. Because expansive applications
often contain many features that may never be used, this method of loading instructs the system loader
to load only the dependent components of a program that are specifically requested. In this way the performance of a program can be improved.
