I'm checking the produced assembly of an optimized executable I compiled with gcc. However one of the functions is just showing up as a bunch of 'db' bytes at a code address I know is a function(I had a printf printing out it's function address).

Any idea why this is happening? There's a 'nop' 1 byte above the start of the function and 1 byte below it and I also have the base pointer omitted. Could these things cause ollydgb to not properly recognize a function? How can this problem be fixed? Is there any option(s) I can use in olly to make it properly recognize the function?

Thanks
