Not sure exactly which part of the article you're talking about, but Ulrich does say: > If the programmer marks the variables correctly with const, the tool chain > will move the variables away from the normal variables into the .rodata > (read-only data) or .data.rel.ro (read-only after relocation) section [...] > No other special action is required. If, for some reason, variables cannot > be marked correctly with const, the programmer can influence their > placement by assigning them to a special section.
