--execute_only assembler option
Adds the EXECONLY AREA attribute to all code sections.
The EXECONLY AREA attribute causes the linker to treat the section as execute-only.
It is the user's responsibility to ensure that the code in the section is safe to run in execute-only memory. For example:
- The code must not contain literal pools.
- The code must not attempt to load data from the same, or another, execute-only section.
This option is only supported for:
- Processors that support the ARMv7-M architecture, such as Cortex-M3, Cortex-M4, and Cortex-M7.
Processors that support the ARMv6-M architecture.
NoteARM has only performed limited testing of execute-only code on ARMv6-M targets.
