Explain segments their pro`s and a method for their implementation?


- The division of address space into logical sections is known as segmentation and each such space is known as a segment.

- In order to access a specific memory location, a program must specify both the segment number and the offset contained in that segment. Segment memory addressing divides the memory into many segments.

- One of the advantages of memory segmentation is that only 16 bit registers are
required to both store segment base address as well as offset address. Due to this the designing of the memory is simple.

- By using segmentation there is the advantage of relocability as well.
