Q35155: L2001 Fixups without Data
Article: Q35155 Product(s): See article Version(s): 3.65 5.01.21 | 5.01.21 Operating System(s): MS-DOS | OS/2 Keyword(s): ENDUSER | | mspl13_basic Last Modified: 12-OCT-1988 The Link Utility can generate the linker error message L2001: fixup(s) without data. In the manual, the linker error is described as follows: A FIXUPP record occurred without a data record immediately preceding it. This is probably a compiler error. (See the "Microsoft MS-DOS Programmer's Reference" for more information on FIXUPP. In most cases, the error message is generated from an assembly-language program that doesn't make sense from the linker's point of view, but is convenient for users. The following is an example: extrn foo:word ABSEG segment at 123 ; absolute segment dw offset DGROUP:foo ; offset portion of address of "foo" ABSEG ends This tells the linker to fix up a location in ABSEG with the address of foo. But ABSEG is an absolute segment and has no data to be fixed up. Another example is when you include the same STRUC definitions in both absolute and non-absolute segments, so that the STRUC definitions contain relocatable addresses.
