Controls the sort order of input sections that are placed using the .ANY module selector.



where order is one of the following:


Sort input sections in descending size order.


Sort input sections by command-line index.

By default, sections that have the same properties are resolved using the creation index. You can use the --tiebreaker command-line option to resolve sections by the order they appear on the linker command-line.

Use this option with the --scatter option.


The sorting governs the order that sections are processed during .ANY assignment. Normal scatter-loading rules, for example RO before RW, are obeyed after the sections are assigned to regions.


The default option is descending_size.
