Description

By default, the linker sorts sections by size (largest to smallest) before locating them. This ensures fewer memory gaps and reduces overall memory consumption.

The NOSORTSIZE directive disables segment size sorting. Use of this directive may cause you program size to increase.

Even when using the NOSORTSIZE directive, the linker processes segments according their type as explained in Locating Segments.
