QUESTION

I have created an assembler program using A51 and now I'm trying to generate an Intel HEX file for it using OH51. However, I receive the following error message:

*** ERROR: UNKNOWN RECORD TYPE 0FH
*** OH51 ABORTED.

What does this error mean?

ANSWER

This error indicates that there is something wrong with the OMF51 object module. Typically, this indicates that the file is not an absolute object module.

When you create an assembler program, you must use the linker to link and locate all objects to their final location. A51 does not product an absolute object module, so you must use the linker.
