VisualDSP, HEX op-codes from LDR file

Started by DB August 25, 2003
Hello everybody,

I would like to post-proccess output LDR file that contains description of
my program (and hex code as well). This post-proccessed file will be used by
VisualDSP to FILL L2 memory space of BF535, or by JTAG debugger to fill
external memory (SDRAM).
Since LDR file stores HEX op-codes as they are (Intel HEX-32 format), and
memory FILL command uses little endian format, things are getting mixed-up.
Any suggestions how to proccess LDR (or DXE) file into format used by FILL
operation (or JTAG download format) ?

appreciate your comments,
Dubi

The ICE will use the ELF file (.DXE). Read up on ELF format. I think you can get the document on the standard from Intel's website, part of the Tool Interchange Standard. ADI provides elfdump.exe for dumping out DXE's for inspection. -- Kenneth Porter http://www.sewingwitch.com/ken/

Kenneth thanks for the hint - elfdump (and its switches) is what I was looking for. I just tried it, and I am getting exactly what I need. thanks, Dubi
