ARM7 and C++, does anybody use it?

Started by uhansen01 March 17, 2005

Hallo,

i could imagine to write an ARM7 application with small elements of
C++. No complicated things like dynamic Linking, but ordenary Classes.

I think that the GNU Compiler is able to to this, but whats about the
Keil Compiler. Does anybody has experience with arm and C++?

Best regards
Uli

I have been writing my firmware in C++ for > 10 years now. Specific
to Arm, I have been using the Arm compiler for 4 years with no
issue. First on an Atmel part and now the 2138. The Arm architecture
is very well suited for C++. --- In , "uhansen01" <uh@a...> wrote:

I'm using the Keil compiler, I don't think it support C++.

We have been using C++ very extensively on the ARM for a number of years
now. We have mostly been using GNU but there are at least three or four
other C++ compilers for the ARM (IAR/ADS/Metaware/GHS). There is also a
cut down version of the C++ standard called embedded C++ or EC++ which
aparently is very popular in Japan. It gives you a lot of the OO
advantages of C++ but leaves a lot of the bloatware aspects out, namely
templates, exceptions and RTTI. Most of the compilers (including GCC)
will turn on theses features from the command line switches.

We use IAR and it supports C++ very efficiently. On the ARM7 you
even get template library support.
