My sincere apologies for posting the same thread again. I found my original thread and replies to that post in my spam folder!!! I am surprised why some mails should land up in spam folder while other from the same mail ID find themselves in the inbox???? Thank you.

I sent a mail on the subject but it seems to have got lost and therefore posting again
I need to have a buffer of about 256 bytes starting at a page boundary in the ram of Mega8. To get this I introduced a new section and assigned it an address in makefile. I defined variables, to test, using attribute section. However when I try to debug the code I see the variables are allotted memory locations other than specified in the section?
My makefile has the following statement
LDFLAGs = -wl,--section-start=.test=0x800100
My .C file has the following statements
unsigned char mem3 __attribute__ ((section(".test")));
mem5 __attribute__ ((section(".test")));
I have also noticed, if I declare a global variable I get overlap error. Please
help me solve this problem. Thank you.
