Linker Sections

Table 1: Standard Linker Sections
.text Executable code, read-only data. This is typically rommable memory.
.data Initialized data. This is not rommable, but an image may be retrieved from rom when the program is started.
.bss Uninitialized data. This is preallocated, zero-filled memory.
.dtors static initializers/destructors. These are part of C++ support and can also be placed in ROM.

UCR presumes that the compiler/assembler/linker is generating coff files with the sections defined in Table .
