QUESTION

What does the RECURSIONS directive do?

ANSWER

The RECURSIONS directive (Abbr. RC) allows you to specify the number of recursions allowed before the linker generates the following fatal error and halts:

FATAL ERROR 232: APPLICATION CONTAINS TOO MANY RECURSIONS.

For example:

BL51 test.obj  RECURSIONS(100)

The linker may run for a long time in order to detect all recursions and remove the references. Therefore, the default setting is RECURSIONS(10).
