CW 10.1 (Kinetis) - How to place functions and variables in .data section?

Hi,

 

Since CW 10.1 should be GCC based, i thought that this should work:

 

void

FuncInRam(void) __attribute__ ((section(".data")));

 

  

  

int

main()

{

   FuncInRam();

}

 

void

FuncInRam(void)

{

...

}

 

But it doesn't. First of all, i wonder why the compiler complains about __attribute__ line. Secondly both going through the MAP-file and a debug session, shows me that the function is actually placed in .text section.

 

I have tried what was surgested in this thread:

https://community.freescale.com/thread/89042

 

With the same result, but this time the compiler complains about the #pragma line.

 

I am using CW 10.1 for microcontrollers (windows hosted) Standard Edition.

 

Also, I am unable to activate the GCC extensions, through the compiler settings. It says it doesn't know the -gcc flag.

 

Any help is appreciated, thank you.
