Faster Loading of a Map File (ELF/DWARF) in ASAP2 Studio
Why does it take long for the ASAP2 Studio to load a map file (Elf/DWARF 32-/64-bit reader)?
A very large number of top level entries cause the slow building of the MAP file window.
Whenever the Elf/DWARF 32-/64-bit (ID 31) reader is used, please use the following setting:
ELF_USE_CPP_EXTENSION_DWARF2 = Yes
With that option, this will produce a hierarchical structure in the MAP file window instead of a flat list of entries. The number of top level entries is then significantly reduced.
Another option is to use the stand-alone ASAP2 Studio to update the ELF file with the newer ELF 32-/64-bit reader (ID 131).
