Question

I have ELF files produced using VisualDSP (*.DXE, *.OVL, *.SM, *.DLB, *.DOJ). Can I use these in the CrossCore Embedded Studio tools?

 

====================================

 

Answer

The ELF format used by CrossCore Embedded Studio differs significantly from the ELF format used by VisualDSP++, so ELF files produced using the VisualDSP++ tools are not compatible with CrossCore Embedded Studio.

 

If you do not have the source code available to rebuild your code, we provide a utility to convert VisualDSP++ ELF output files to the ELF format used by CrossCore Embedded Studio, called elf2elf.exe.

 

This utility is found in the CrossCore Embedded Studio installation directory, and is documented at “Help->Contents->CrossCore Embedded Studio™ 1.0.x->Loader and Utilities Manual->B Utilities”.

 

Alternatively, if you still have access to the source files used to produce these ELF output files, you can rebuild them using CrossCore Embedded Studio.
