QUESTION

My program includes large empty areas in the address space. How can I avoid these blank spaces in the BINARY file that I create from the HEX file?

ANSWER

In the options for OH166, you can specify the address range of the code you want to include in the HEX file. Your command line would look like:

OH166 mycode H167 RANGE(0x010000-0x01FFFF)

Then, when you create the BINARY file, the unused area (from 0x000000 to 0x00FFFF) won't be included.
