What does the NOSORTSIZE directive do?
The NOSORTSIZE directive (Abbr. NOSO) disables sorting program segments by size. This is the method used in C51 Version 5 and earlier.
Note that in C51 Version 6, the BL51 Linker sorts and locates segments by size. This ensures fewer GAPS in the memory space and reduces memory consumption.
You need to use the NOSORTSIZE directive only if you must be compatible with the way the C51 V5.50 linker worked.
