When we create a Multi-Cultural or Multi-lingual Application and if we want to distribute this application seperately from local modules , the local assemblies that change this core application are said to be Satellite Assemblies .
To create the satellite assemblies, We will use Assembly Linker i.e al.exe utility to link the resource file to an assembly.
For example :
al /t:library /embed:strings.en.resources /culture:en /out:MyAppSrikanth.resources.dll
The /t option ----> will direct Assembly Linker to build a library,
and the /embed ----> option identifies the file to be linked.
