How do i build project with GNUARM tools

Started by boje_d July 6, 2005
Hi
I am a newcommer in gnu tools
I have installed the GNUARM tools from gnuarm.com and downloaded a
small projekt from this group. In this projekt there is a make file.
Do i need to feed this makefile into a program called make?? I am
using a win xp computer. There do not seem to be a make program
included with the gnuarm tools.
All help will be recieved with thanks.
Best regard

If you are really new to all this, expect a hard time.

If you have no Unix background in anyway, you might want to look at either
some IDEs like Eclipse or DevCpp (hope wrote it right) which act as
front-end to gcc.

Or even go for some commercial product like Imagecraft or Rowleys which
which aren't that expensive.

And yes, you'll need make (there are win32 version).
Take a look at MSys, which is a minimal unix-like enviromnt which has all
you need for development.

Hi Boje.

Why not take a look at my tutorial "ARM Cross Development with
Eclipse" which is mentioned in the "links" section of this LPC2000
group. It's aimed at beginners and has simple explanations on how to
set up the make file, linker script, etc. using the GNUARM toolset.

Good luck,
Jim Lynch

You can obtain a compatible make utility from:

http://unxutils.sourceforge.net

You might also want to take a look at:

http://www.freertos.org/portlpc2106.html

which contains some instructions on using GNUARM.
