QUESTION

What does the SPEEDOVL directive do?

ANSWER

The SPEEDOVL directive (Abbr. SP) causes the linker to ignore constant segments (those that begin with ?CO?) from the overlay analysis. You may need to use this directive if you have a large number of constant code segments in a program and the linker requires a very long time to run. This directive might also be useful for applications that contain complex pointers to function tables. Note that if you use function pointers, you must manually adjust the call tree (using the OVERLAY directive) or the SPEEDOVL directive may result in unreported warnings.
