8.3.1 Components of a load region description

The components of a load region description allow you to uniquely identify a load region and to control what parts of an ELF file are placed in that region.

A load region description has the following components:

  • A name (used by the linker to identify different load regions).

  • A base address (the start address for the code and data in the load view).

  • Attributes that specify the properties of the load region.

  • An optional maximum size specification.

  • One or more execution regions.

The following figure shows an example of a typical load region description:
