Hi all,
   I am using Yagarto(GCC 4.4.2) version.In this GCC documents,they
are mentioned that,we have to use following code in linker script,
    .eh_frame :
        KEEP (*(.eh_frame))
    } > sram

Plase explain why should we use this code in linker script?
Is there any specific reason?Because its consumes(0x848 bytes)ram?
How to avoid this(Memory is important for embedded systems) ?
In GCC4.1.1  i haven't face this Issue?

Hello Prabu,

please try to use:

    //DISCARD// :

instead. Use one slash instead of //.
