 Chapter 5. Tool Chain Compatibility Requirements

The purpose of this chapter is to provide the requirements to be able to demonstrate OpenPOWER ELFv2 ABI compliance of a tool under test that either generates or operates on binary object files. This could be an assembler, disassembler, linker, or similar tool, or it could be a compiler that directly generates binary object files. 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 tool.
