GCC Bugzilla – Bug 49674
Improve documentation for __attribute__ __section__
Last modified: 2011-07-08 10:23:58 UTC
Can someone please improve the documentation for __attribute__ __section__ ? Only functions are mentioned, but I know it works for variables too. This is the documentation page on the Web:
Apparently, there are checks in GCC against the section properties. For example, you cannot place a non-const variable in a const section, you get a "section type conflict" error message. Documentation about this would be an extra bonus.
I wonder how documentation bugs are handled in this project, I couldn't find any "documentation" category in Bugzilla.
Many thanks in advance.
