Problem running code generated with CodeWarrior

Hello, I modified a project initially written for windriver diab compiler to work with Codewarrior.


I then ran the project with the help of cw_icdppcnexus but experienced a problem after startup when the PC goes to the main function: The PC gets 000000h which makes execution continue at a location where there is no executable code


So I had a look at the assembly instructions equivalency and compared the original Windriver executable file with the CodeWarrior one. Here is the result:

The window on top is the Codewarrior generated code, the second is from Windriver.


Codewarrior generates some extra instructions which make the PC go to 00000h due to SE_BLR instruction (LR is 00000h). After that the code looks very similar for both compilers. Is there a way to disable the generation of those extra instructions?? (does not actually know what those instructions do)


Thanks a lot
