zero byte executable file size when compiling with qcc/armle

I have a simple question, the answer may be a bit more involved.

I have built an application on QNX 6.0 using “qcc -Vgcc_ntoarmle”
the libraries build just fine, the application builds a ‘.o’ file with out
a problem. But after it links the appl, it creates a file of 0(zero)

Has anyone encountered this before?

Thanks in advance for help…

I’m assuming that you are using one of the early experimental drops,
since armle support wasn’t in the official 6.0 release.

The 0 file size probably means that ld is crashing. Are you compiling
with debug? There was a bug in the 2.10 linker that caused it to
crash when dealing with undefined symbols when using dwarf-1 debug info.

I would recommend updating to the 6.1.0 for arm, its a lot more solid.
