Resolution _is_ on activation.

This is probably not technically 100% correct but it serves.

When a program requests an SP connection, the SP is activated and resolves all of its procedure pointers at that time. Those pointers are then assigned to their respective position is the slot table. So the resolution only takes place at SP activation.

When a program wants to use a specific procedure it requests the pointer in slot X (which was determined at program creation time) and then does any calls based on that pointer. That same pointer is used throughout the activation life of that program/procedure.

Hope this makes sense.

Why wouldn't resolution be upon activation (not on every call)? I think there wouldn't be much increase in overhead during activation and no change in overhead after activation.
