Re: XC16 - v1.32B - elf-objdump.exe has stopped working
We have recently discovered this issue with objdump crashing after the build and are aware of it. I received some reports on Wednesday and have identified the cause and the resolution. That doesn't really help users out there today!
The issue is that there are some data sections in FLASH (typically space(prog) or 'code' assembly sections that contain data) that look like code sections and the checker tool is trying to evaluate the code (only for EP devices). Unfortunately this fails in a dramatic way.
The good new is that at this point the compiler and linker have finished there work, and an ELF file is sitting where it ought to sit (doing a further build - not clean and build) should allow MPLAB X to find it and program the device. The bad news is that the checker tool is not able to check the safety of this code.
We got off schedule with releases and are planning a quick-turn release for v1.33 which will be another part-support release with a number of bug fixes, including this one.
If you have any further questions about this issue, please send me a private message and will be happy to respond.
