Hi again,

I have an AT91SAM7S-EK and SAM-ICE. Atmel provided some quick-start info
re the IAR tool chain, yet I would like to use WinARM. I have read thru
the gnupro_userguide.pdf, yet have not been able to find a short
"checklist" of what to install on a Windows development machine in order
to get going. Can someone please point me in the right direction (I have
not used GNU/GCC tools before).

I also noticed that the gnupro_userguide mentions the need to use
thumb-elf-.... tools for ARM/THUMB devices, yet the ..\WinARM\bin folder
contains only arm-elf-... tools. Do I have the correct WinARM install,
or have I missed something else.

Many Thanks

Hello Chaz,

arm-elf-xxx is correct, with this tools you can
produce thumb code too.

If you have problem with the install, and need a GUI
for debugging, take a look here:


Sorry, I do not know what exact switches you must use for
creating THUMB code. Perhaps Martin or someone else can
answer this question. But I belive that WinARM has
some examples for THUMB too.
