[Bug gold/13162] New: gold should support -Ttext-segment, not overload -Ttext
Wed, 07 Sep 2011 16:52:51 +0000
Bug #: 13162
Summary: gold should support -Ttext-segment, not overload
Version: 2.22 (HEAD)
gold does not support the -Ttext-segment option that BFD ld has.
It is anti-helpful that gold defines -Ttext to mean what -Ttext-segment means
in BFD ld. BFD ld has established the canonical meaning of -Ttext (and -Tdata
and -Tbss) as setting the address of the section named ".text". This is not a
very useful feature, but it is far worse to have an option of the same name
that does something different. If you don't want to support that feature,
that's fine--but don't provide an option called -Ttext that does something
subtly different. That's just inane.
The -Ttext-segment option is the one BFD ld provides that is actually useful.
Gold should accept that same option name for the same functionality.
