- Subject: Bug: BSS segment in COFF files
I'm trying to link some code compiled with the Cygwin gcc compiler with
the Watcom linker. This works as the Watcom linker supports the COFF
object code format. However, there seems to be a problem with
uninitialized variables. After analyzing an object file it seems as if
the BSS segment always has size 0 so that the Cygwin generated object
files are not valid COFF files. Is this a known problem?
I ended up in making all uninitialized data to 0-inialized variables.
Is there any better way?
