MEMORY           Locate segment as last segment possible         Combine Type

  segname   SEGMENT MEMORY

    Causes the Microsoft Linker to treat this segment exactly like a
    PUBLIC segment.  The Microsoft Linker does not support the MEMORY
    combine type as outlined by the Intel definition of the MEMORY combine
    type.  Instead all MEMORY segments are treated as PUBLIC segments.

       Notes:     According to Intel sources, the MEMORY combine type is
                  supposed to force the Linker to place this segment after
                  all other segments that are linked together.  The first
                  MEMORY segment would be placed as the highest segment in
                  memory.  Subsequent segments containing the MEMORY
                  segment would be treated as COMMON segments.

                  If no combine type is specified, the segment is not
                  combined with any other segments and is given its own
                  physical segment when loaded into memory.
