Problem Reading Symbol table in the COFF file for C6x processor

Started by Unknown May 12, 2004

I am trying to parse through the COFF file, according to "TMS320C6000
Assembly Language Tools" Appendix 2, the File Header Contents's 12-15
bytes contains the Number of entries in the symbol table.

In my case, I get 2802 entries. I was reading the symbols fine up
until the 1888th entry, then I encounter a symbol entry with aux
value equal 103, everything start from there are garbage.

Everything before this entry has aux value of either 0 or 1. Is
there some kind of special handling that I need to do for these

Thanks in advance.
