Use of Linker Overlays for Blackfin ?

I'm looking for any pointers regarding the use of Linker Overlays for the Blackfin.


I'm currently using the JPEG decoder, and want to be able to use the MP4 decoder but lack sufficient on-chip memory (BF-531). Since I don't have to use both of these IP modules at the same time I would like to be able to overlay them for their on-chip resource usage.  I don't know if this is possible to do with software object modules (libraries) that I don't have the source for.


Have seen the EE-66 and EE-67 appnotes and the VDSP 5 Linker Manual.


Thank you,
