From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

  linker
  linkage editor
  link editor
  link loader
  
      (link editor, linkage editor, link loader)
     A program that combines one or more files containing object
     code from separately compiled program modules into a single
     file containing loadable or executable code
  
     This process involves resolving references between the
     modules and fixing the relocation information used by the
     operating system kernel when loading the file into memory to
     run it.
  
     Under Unix, the linker is called "ld" and object files
     have filename extension .o (object), .so (shared object), or
     .lib ({library), and the resulting executable is called
     "a.out" by default.
