--first=section_id

This option 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.

Show/hideSyntax

--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

Show/hideUsage

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