Customized C library startup code and access to C library functions

When building an application without the C library, if you create an application that includes a main() function, the linker automatically includes the initialization code necessary for the execution environment. There are situations where this is not desirable or possible. For example, a system running a Real-Time Operating System (RTOS) might have its execution environment configured by the RTOS startup code.

You can create an application that consists of customized startup code and still use many of the library functions. You must either:

  • avoid functions that require initialization

  • provide the initialization and low-level support functions.
