How do I fill data to unused area in the memory?

Latest Updated:09/18/2015

Question:

How do I fill data to unused area in the memory?

Answer:

There are two methods.

  1. Input at the end of a section
    Specify the –padding option.
    Input a value (0x00, the NOP instruction) at the end of a section so that the size of the section is an integer multiple of its alignment. Specifiable file types for output are *.abs, *.hex, *.mot, and *.bin.
    Adjust sections with absolute addresses (sections generated under the “.org” assembler directive) by your own processing, since these are not padded automatically.
  2. Input other than at the end of a section
    Specify the –space option and fill the output area with the data (user-specified).
    Specifiable file types for output are *.abs, *.hex, *.mot, and *.bin.
