I think the previous post was requiring a Linux example, so YAGARTO is no
good. I have some instructions and examples, but again for Windoze,
although I don't see why Linux would be any different:

Should work for sure - there are maybe some better examples in the
FreeRTOS.org download that are a little less clumsy as to where they dump .o
files ;o)

With very useful comments from all of you, I have managed to
successfully build my source files. Thanks very much indeed.

One thing I have noticed is that when I run the build, there is a
window that appears momentarily (showing a progress bar) with the message:

gcc -E -P -v -dD/ro ... gins/org.eclipse.cdt.make.core/specs.c

What is this gcc being invoked when I am using my own arm compiler in
the makefile for my project source files?

Thanks
Samie
