6.3.6 Linker defined symbols and scatter files

When you are using scatter-loading, the names from a scatter file are used in the linker defined symbols.

The scatter file:

  • Names all the execution regions in the image, and provides their load and execution addresses.

  • Defines both stack and heap. The linker also generates special stack and heap symbols.
