Linking problems when using far mode

Started by eran segev February 25, 2002
Hi group,
I'm using CC2.0 for the 5402 processor.
The problem I have appear when I try to compile and
link my code using -mf (far mode).
While linking I get this annoying warning:
"linking incompatible formats: file compiled with -mf"
and the linker treats this warning as an error.
It does not help if I use the far libraries:
drv5402f.lib , dsk5402f.lib
Does any one have any Idea?
Anything would be helpful
Thanks in advance
Eran



Eran,

Just curious, are you also using the rts_ext.lib for your runtime library?
Each library must be of the same type, either far model or near model.

Eran,

Is it all C code that you are using, or is there some assembly? When you're
compiling C code, and you use the -mf switch, there is a directive created
in the generated assembly file that tells the linker that this is a far
model .obj file. If you're linking in your own assembly functions, you need
to specify the directive also. I can't remember off the top of my head what
the directive is, but you can find out by keeping the .asm filesn generated
by the compiler and finding out what the directive it adds is.

Dan,
After failing to link my original and complicated code
I tried to compile and link the simple blink example,
using the -mf flag and that too does not work. I can't
think of something simlier then that.
Thanks

Eran,

Check in Project->Build Options -> Linker, and be sure that there is no
library specified in the "include libraries" text box. When I opened blink,
rts.lib was included there, which was causing the problems. Once it was
removed, the project built properly.
