>> Hello All,
>> In ARM embedded applications, there are some compilers that support useful function and variable attributes that help the compiler communicate information about symbols to downstream object consumers (i.e. linkers).
>> One such attribute is the “location” attribute. This attribute can be applied to a global or local static data object or a function to indicate to the linker that the definition of the data object or function should be placed at a specific address in memory.
Can that be applied to a section as well?
Would putting it in an ABS section be a way to communicate it?
