 Chapter 3. Compiler Compatibility Requirements

The purpose of this chapter is to provide the requirements to be able to demonstrate OpenPOWER ELFv2 ABI compliance of a compiler. This chapter does not specify any particular test harness that needs to be used to demonstrate that those requirements are satisfied; it is expected that tests verifying the listed requirements are added to whatever test harness is already in use for development of the compiler.


If the compiler directly generates binary object files, the requirements in Chapter 5, Tool Chain Compatibility Requirements apply in addition to those in this chapter.
