Re: [cc65] [ld65] Overwriting fillval for one segment only?

After thinking some time about it, I don't find it as bad as a few days ago,
but I still don't like it very much. What I don't like is the idea that
something very resonable, like "fillval" used for .res and .align is mixed
with something else, like "fillval" for a segment being used to fill up the
space between two segments. It is difficult to explain to someone, why these
bytes should be part of either segment.

So maybe we find another solution. How about being able to specify some sort
of "flexible glue" between segments? It can share most attributes with a
segment (and might in fact be emulated using a segment using the current
linker). Maybe some additional attributes like a minimum or maximum size is

Would that by something that solves your problem?
