* Third Eye makes no claims about the applicability of this
* symbol table to a particular use.
* This file contains the definition of the Third Eye Symbol Table.
* Symbols are assumed to be in 'encounter order' - i.e. the order that
* the things they represent were encountered by the compiler/assembler/loader.
* EXCEPT for globals! These are assumed to be bunched together,
* probably right after the last 'normal' symbol. Globals ARE sorted
* in ascending order.
* -----------------------------------------------------------------------
* A brief word about Third Eye naming/use conventions:
* All arrays and index's are 0 based.
* All "ifooMax" values are the highest legal value PLUS ONE. This makes
* them good for allocating arrays, etc. All checks are "ifoo < ifooMax".
* "isym" Index into the SYMbol table.
* "ipd" Index into the Procedure Descriptor array.
* "ifd" Index into the File Descriptor array.
* "iss" Index into String Space.
* "cb" Count of Bytes.
* "rgPd" array whose domain is "0..ipdMax-1" and RanGe is PDR.
* "rgFd" array whose domain is "0..ifdMax-1" and RanGe is FDR.
* Symbolic Header (HDR) structure.
* As long as all the pointers are set correctly,
* we don't care WHAT order the various sections come out in!
* A file produced solely for the use of CDB will probably NOT have
* any instructions or data areas in it, as these are available
* in the original.

* to simply specify the names of the directories where the COMPILES
* were done, and we will be able to find their files.
* A field whose comment starts with "R - " indicates that it will be
* setup at runtime.

/* Dense numbers
* Rather than use file index, symbol index pairs to represent symbols
* and globals, we use dense number so that they can be easily embeded
* in intermediate code and the programs that process them can
* use direct access tabls instead of hash table (which would be
* necesary otherwise because of the sparse name space caused by
* file index, symbol index pairs. Dense number are represented
* by RNDXRs.
* The following table defines the meaning of each SYM field as
* a function of the "st". (scD/B == scData OR scBss)
* Note: the value "isymMac" is used by symbols that have the concept
* of enclosing a block of related information. This value is the
* isym of the first symbol AFTER the end associated with the primary
* symbol. For example if a procedure was at isym==90 and had an
* isymMac==155, the associated end would be at isym==154, and the
* symbol at 155 would probably (although not necessarily) be the
* symbol for the next procedure. This allows rapid skipping over
* internal information of various sorts. "stEnd"s ALWAYS have the
* isym of the primary symbol that started the block.
