Page vs. Frame


I read some tutorial for Operating System. I really donít understand the difference between page and frame. I think that page is frame in virtual memory. Correct?

Thanks in advance

what context are you asking this question about? you're question could apply to a number of different areas, such as webpages or virtual memory... please be more specific.

The Linux kernel partitions RAM into fixed length page frames. It then stores a page (or block of data) in it. It maps the linear addresses (pages) to physical addresses (page frames) using the page table.
