Help with installing mspgcc-20120406-p20120911 to W7

Started by Joe Bleaux November 17, 2013
What am I doing wrong or not doing at all? I want to use GCC free compiler
for the MSP-430 family and especially for the TI Launchpad MSP430F5529.

I have never used GCC before. Also, where is a list of c commands for this
processor?

Thanks for any and all help.

You might find the documents here useful
http://sourceforge.net/projects/msp430ada/files/doc/

"MSP430-Ada.pdf" describes the details of the process I followed to
build and install gcc (version 4.7) for the MSP430, using the mspgcc
backend.

Don't be put off by the fact that it describes building an Ada compiler;
it builds the C compiler too (I just don't have any use for C). So there
are a few steps in the process which you may bypass, but the bulk of the
process will be the same.

I have used it both with the EZ-430 and the launchpad, and my own
platforms (e.g. simple digital watch)

Apparently the MSP430 backend is making it into the GCC mainstream, so I
will update these instructions when it does.

"Building_MSP430-Ada_Applications.txt" describes using the compiler from
the command line. Most fo the options are useful or necessary whichever
language you use.
Hope this helps,
