Re: Vlink internal error problem
Posted by: Chain-Q Jul,26.2020-14:57 

Recent vlink has a section merge feature. Tou can tell it to simply merge multiple sections of a single type into one. I think the argument to enable it is called -mtype.

We use this feature in the Atari (and Amiga) versions of Free Pascal compiler, which extensively uses named sections, so by design generates a bunch of code and data section with different names, and they have to be merged into one link time.

(Named sections are necessary for section garbage collection to function i.e. to choose only the necessary parts from a large .o file, for example our run time library... Section GC reduces the size of a Free Pascal "hello world" from 300K to about 30K.)
