Exception frame data "eh_frame"

Started by Scott April 17, 2010
I just recompiled a program I wrote for LPC2138 on a new platform. Changes are:
- From Winarm/GCC under Windows to GCC under Ubuntu Linux (09.10)
- From GCC 4.1.2 to GCC 4.4.2

Most of the build output was identical except a new section of data was created called "eh_frame". I understand this is related to call frames that must be unwound during the processing of an exception. As I don't do this at present I have just dumped this data via the linker script:

Is this ok? Does anyone know if there are any consequences of doing this apart from not being able to trace exceptions. Thanks.
