9.50 --first=section_id

Places the selected input section first in its execution region. This can, for example, place the section containing the vector table first in the image.

Syntax

--first=section_id
Where section_id is one of the following:
symbol
Selects the section that defines symbol. You must not specify a symbol that has more than one definition, because only one section can be placed first. For example: --first=reset.
object(section)
Selects section from object. There must be no space between object and the following open parenthesis. For example: --first=init.o(init).
object
Selects the single input section in object. If you use this short form and there is more than one input section, the linker generates an error message. For example: --first=init.o.

Usage

The --first option cannot be used with --scatter. Instead, use the +FIRST attribute in a scatter file.
