_PRESTART (.init) section - who created this and why?

I am a newbie using CW for MC9S08. I noticed that there is a section _PRESTART (or .init) section which is created by the Linker automatically. In the manual it says:


"The application entry point is sotred in the segment _PRESTART. This segment also has got to be associated with a READ_ONLY section".


I checked the start08.c file but I could not find a section named _PRESTART or .init


Can anyone please advise?
