8.4.1 Components of an execution region description

The components of an execution region description allow you to uniquely identify each execution region and its position in the parent load region, and to control what parts of an ELF file are placed in that execution region.

An execution region description has the following components:

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

  • A base address (either absolute or relative).

  • Attributes that specify the properties of the execution region.

  • An optional maximum size specification.

  • One or more input section descriptions (the modules placed into this execution region).

The following figure shows the components of a typical execution region description:
