--api, --no_api

Enables and disables API section sorting. API sections are the sections that are called the most within a region.

Usage

In large region mode the API sections are extracted from the region and then inserted closest to the hotspots of the calling sections. This minimizes the number of veneers generated.

Default

The default is --no_api. The linker automatically switches to --api if at least one execution region contains more code than the smallest inter-section branch. The smallest inter-section branch depends on the code in the region and the target processor:

128MB
Execution region contains only A64 instructions.
32MB
Execution region contains only A32 instructions.
16MB
Execution region contains 32-bit T32 instructions.
4MB
Execution region contains only 16-bit T32 instructions.
