.bss section header
The one deviation from the normal rule
in the section header table is the entry for uninitialized data
in a .bss section.
A .bss section has a
size and symbols that refer to it, and symbols that are defined in
At the same time, a .bss section has no relocation entries,
no line number entries, and no data.
Therefore, a .bss section has an entry in the section header table
but occupies no space elsewhere in the file.
In this case, the number
of relocation and line number entries, as well as all file pointers
in a .bss section header, are 0.
The same is true of the STYP_NOLOAD and STYP_DSECT
