QUESTION

What does the NOINDIRECTCALL directive do?

ANSWER

The NOINDIRECTCALL directive (Abbr. NOIC) is used in code banking applications to signal the linker that all calls through function pointers are made into the same code bank. This generates faster indirect function calls in code banking programs. If you use this directive, you must ensure that indirect function calls never cross a code bank.
