Testing an application build with H8300 cross compiler
Mon Nov 19 13:04:00 GMT 2001
Linked executable means the final executable file created by the linker
in your case, h8300-hitachi-hms-ld.
This would be a '.out' file. If you see the detail directory listing of
this file, it will show the size of the file in bytes.
Hope its clear now.
