How can I modify the name of the text section which is by default".text"

When C source code is compiled into an object file (.o), the functions
are put into the .text section.
Is it possible that I put all functions to a renamed text section
whose name may be ".text.app" .

When linking several .o files into an executable, I need to put the
code of .o files into different positions(in MCU).
If I can rename the text section of object files, I can set different
section start addresses for each section.

Some compilers support this. Please look the documentation of
the compiler system you are using.

If not, just generate an assembly listing, and
change the name of the section with an editor, then assemble
the file.

I've read that... AClass ac = AClass( "name", 23 ); is less efficient than... AClass ac( "name", 23 ); because the first has to create a temporary object which is then assigned to ac. However, I can't seem to prove this true. I've created a class containing the following constructors and overloaded equal operator.
