On reading through the document, I understand that there was a
default size-based algorithm to support the cmd file by default.
I would like to know if I need to replicate a similar behaviour, should
I add all my object files to cmd file in the order of their size?
This would mean doing it for some 300 source files that are present.
Is a guide on the implementation of the algorithm available,
so that i can replicate it? Also, any help on automating the
size based allocation would be helpful.
A good discussion on the --default_order option can be found here. Note that the linker currently uses a sized based algorithm. Older (think years back) linkers did not use a size based algorithm. This caused some unexpected problems for a few users. It is those users who used --default_order to cause the linker to use the older algorithm instead of the sized based algorithm.
Thanks and regards,
