I am compiling some code for the 8051 where some (constant) arrays are marked as __xdata. These naturally are placed in external memory.
SDCC (does not generate a binary ? but) generates a hex file in intel hex format. As far as I know, intel hex cannot describe memory contents of separate memories. This is problematic because both CODE and XDATA range from 0-xFF...
How will the loader know which parts of the hex file go to XDATA and which to CODE?
Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Note: I technically can place constants in CODE, but there are code size issues.
Please don't double-post.
