When is -R option of the object converter important and how does it work?

Latest Updated:04/01/2006

Question:

When is the -R option of the object converter necessary and how does it work?

Answer:

When outputting the objects whose address are determined by the linker, the -R option is used to sort them according to the address order.
In the ROM ordering system, it is checked whether the objects requested by the customer are sorted in the address order.
If they are not sorted in the address order, it is regarded as an error and the processing is not accepted.
The -R option is thus provided to solve this problem.
