Do you mean "source code" and "object code"? Source code is the code you type. In a compiled language like C or C++ the source code that you type is processed by the compiler to produce object code. The object code is not quite ready to run yet. A program known as a linker links all of the object code together with some startup code and any libraries to produce the final executable code (your program).


Thank you
