Recommended Map File Format to Update A2L

Question:
Which map file format is recommended to update A2L?
Answer:
A map-file in *.map format does not contain enough information for structured datatypes, bit position, several elements of a structure.

Therefore we recommend to use other map-formats, e. g. ELF32 formats like *.elf, *.out or *.abs. These formats contain more information than a *.map file.

Please check if the compiler/linker can create other map-formats (e. g. ELF32 format: *.elf, *.out or .abs). Probably you have to add a switch in your linker settings to create debug information.

As File reader please chose "ELF/DWARF 32".
