 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.

[Note]Note

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.
