3.17.7 C6X Options
- This specifies the name of the target architecture. GCC uses this
name to determine what kind of instructions it can emit when generating
assembly code. Permissible names are: ‘c62x’,
‘c64x’, ‘c64x+’, ‘c67x’, ‘c67x+’, ‘c674x’.
- Generate code for a big-endian target.
- Generate code for a little-endian target. This is the default.
- Choose startup files and linker script suitable for the simulator.
- Put small global and static data in the ‘.neardata’ section,
which is pointed to by register
B14. Put small uninitialized
global and static data in the ‘.bss’ section, which is adjacent
to the ‘.neardata’ section. Put small read-only data into the
‘.rodata’ section. The corresponding sections used for large
pieces of data are ‘.fardata’, ‘.far’ and ‘.const’.
- Put all data, not just small objects, into the sections reserved for
small data, and use addressing relative to the
B14 register to
- Make no use of the sections reserved for small data, and use absolute
addresses to access all data. Put all initialized global and static
data in the ‘.fardata’ section, and all uninitialized data in the
‘.far’ section. Put all constant data into the ‘.const’
