C166: CHANGING THE LOCATION OF THE RESET VECTOR

QUESTION

When I finish linking and load the code to the emulator or simulator, the first instruction is a jmp at address zero. How do I change the location of the jmp instruction?

ANSWER

The 166 toolset has an L166 directive 'VECTAB', which allows you to specify the interrupt vector table. You can simply add the VECTAB directive to the Linker invocation line, as in the following example:

L166 xxx.obj directives VECTAB (2000H)

If you are running µVision/166 you can reach this control with Options - L166 Linker - Location - Interrupt Vector Table Address.

The directive does not only modify the start address of the RESET vector. It is an offset which is added to all Interrupt Vectors. This is typical of what you may need when debugging with a monitor or other environment when interrupt vectors must be relocated.
