Output of an S8 record in a Motorola S-record file (CC-RL)

Last Updated:04/17/2017

Question:

I am using the CC-RL compiler for RL78 devices. How can I change the final record of a Motorola S-record file to the S8 type? The record becomes S9, even though I have changed the setting.

Answer:

There is no facility for specifying the final record as S8 or S9.
For CC-RL, an S8 or S9 record is output for the address of the entry point to the function. The entry address is the address specified by the linker’s -entry option (a symbol is also acceptable). 
If the -entry option is not specified, an S9 record with the entry address 0 is output.
