Hello, all.

I am beginning a debugging tool for 8-bit microcontrollers.
I need information about linker output formats for compilers like
IAR-Systems C51, Keil C51, Archimedes, BSO/Tasking, and so on.

These (and I suppose much sompilers) use some 'standarized'
file formats in order to allow debugging programs compiled with
another's compilers. These formats are IEEE 695, OMF51, UBROFF, and
some other (I assume the rest are more vendor-specific).

I have only slight information about IEEE 695, which in turn
seems to be the least popular. I need help about the other formats, or
hints on how to get that info.

Any help would be very appreciated.

[The IEEE sells copies of IEEE 695, which isn't very expensive. See -John]
