Hi All,
I am using LPC1114 with LPCXpresso environment. I have gone through the Code Red wiki but could not find the answer. I am trying to place a constant (eg. crc = 0x12345678) at a perticular location in program memory. I want to know the procedure to add this constant at say suppose 0x7FEC in the program memory.

I think we need to create a section and then reference in program memory
  __attribute__((section(".crc_fixup")))  unsigned int app_crc_fixup = 0x12345678;

So can anyone please provide me what changes need to be made in the linker script?
