Does NASM Support Mach-O Custom Sections?
« on: March 09, 2010, 09:51:25 AM »
I'm currently writing a Forth interpreter for OS X 10.6.x and would like to keep my headers in it's own separate .section, does NASM support custom sections for 64-bit Mach-O files?

Based on the latest outmacho64.c source listing, I would have to say no.

The following are the currently valid section names:

  • .text
  • .data
  • .rodata
  • .bss

Looks like you might be able to utilize the .rodata (read only data) section for what you want.

That'll do for now, I just have to remember to have GCC set .rodata to be read/writable.

Thanks for the help.
