Example startup code for Arm Compiler 6 project

A.2 Example startup code for Arm® Compiler 6 project

This is an example startup code that compiles without errors using Arm® Compiler 6.

This code has been modified to demonstrate migration from Arm Compiler 5 to Arm Compiler 6. This code requires other modifications for use in a real application.
