Using NowECC to generate linkable output?
I'm trying to get NowECC to give me a library file that I can use to link back into our firmware image and I'm missing something about how this is supposed to work. I can feed an S-record file into the tool and it can output the ECC data to an S-record just fine. When I try to get a linkable file output using -L, it seems to ignore the option and still gives just the S-record format output. If I specify the -N option, it says "Ignoring the root name command since the output file is not in COFF/ELF format." So is it possible to input an S-record file and output an ELF file that I can link back into the build that generated the S-record input file? OR, do I need to input an ELF file version of my build and let the nowECC tool _add_ a section for ECC to it when it outputs?
We have received your post. We are reviewing it to provide an answer.
You need to provide a linkable file to be able to get a linkable file from nowECC, so your last assumption is right, please provide an ELF file.
