For a general overview of ARM processor cores and development tools, see http://embdev.net/articles/ARM.
GCC toolchain packages/building instructions:
- CodeSourcery (Thumb-2 supported)
- DevKitPro (Thumb-2 supported)
- Toolchain for Linux & Mac OS X – similar to WinARM
- OpenOCD – Open Source JTAG tool for ARM
- Building bare-metal ARM with GNU – nice PDF-book introduction to ARM and GCC
- ARM Info Center – the official source
- ”Insider’s Guide” for several ARM-controller families (registration required)
- SevensAndNines.com – ARM website by the compiler vendor IAR Systems
- FreeRTOS – many example projects for various ARM boards provided

Thanks Martin and Clifford, I have added the links.

The similarity between the project contact address and your user name on this forum lead me to suspect that this is an attempt at self promotion, and might be considered Spam. By all means introduce your project to the forum (in another thread), but until it has been proven useful by the community, I am not sure that it deserves a place here. Moreover the product seems somewhat immature and the website's use of English does not inspire confidence. It says: "CooCox Builder V0.1 can only build and has not been tested completely, it only for the users who always give attention to us". I have no idea what that comment means!? It looks like the kind of nonsense that comes out of an automated translator such as Babel Fish.
Hi friend, Maybe there is some truth about what you said, but CooCox CoBuilder has only released its 0.1 version. It is all for free. I have used CooCox CoBuilder myself, it is really distinctive, its repository is completely organized by components. Maybe it is ordinary even not good compared with other mature IDE right now, but CooCox will be absolutely a very useful and different set of development tools for ARM Cortex M3. Just have a try, please.

I'm shocked by your response to a development tool which is completely free. Even if you have doubts about it, it is rather rude and immature to say things like that.
Anny Lee wrote: > I'm shocked by your response to a development tool which is completely > free. Free dose not make it a useful resource - and that is what this thread is for. It deserves a place in this thread when and if large numbers of developers have used it and it has proven to be useful. Until then take your project to a different thread for discussion; that is all I am saying. Note that in all this time that it has not made it to the front page. Also you caginess about your relationship to this project (pretending to teh a user not the developer) does you no service. Clifford
I can't agree you more, Dude.
Hi Cliff, I completely agree with you: this is self-promotion. This product may be free (as in "beer"), but it looks like it is not free (as in "speech")! Beside the OS itself and the adapter schematic, nothing is disclosed. The site's "About us" section does not give a hint on who is behind this, and a quick WHOIS search directs you to China... I have found many forums where this project suddenly appeared using self-promotion. My advice is to be very careful about this product, because of the methods used for promotion, and because of the ambiguity on "free"...
Hi Cliff and squonk42, You guys are right. I did some self-promotion on my own products. I am sorry for all the inconvenience aroused. As CooCox products are emerging, propaganda is part of what it takes to achieve mature and well-known software. As the CooCox team is dedicated to perfecting its products, we have faith that all the software provided is and will become more reliable in the near future. Thanks for your precious advice. I will take that into consideration.
Hello! While you vanities on who what and why present this product, I just tried it. And I must tell you that for me he has a future in GNU Embedded community. Do not know how they do it, but it will not manifest and there peaceful use of MAKE for example. Get to test the software available free of these boys and girls, and then decide what is and support him or not endorse it! When something new appears, it is said that it will be endorsed as such in time. Respect the work of the people are not gods to judge them!
Choko Boko wrote: > Respect the work of the people are not gods to judge them! My objection was only with the lack of honesty and transparency, and the use of this particular thread rather than one of its own. Since it was so obviously self-promotion, treating the community like fools who would not notice or be concerned is insulting.
When something is proposed for a test and it is Free, there is nothing offensive or stupid to bother to make it look or test! No need to argue their opinion about who can do what in the forum or at all! If what is presented does not cause feedback does not sound or is not impressed anyone, and will remain unanswered!
Choko Boko wrote: > When something is proposed for a test and it is Free, there is nothing > offensive or stupid to bother to make it look or test! You are entirely missing the point! This is a permanent thread for resources that developers have found sufficiently useful and widely used enough to warrant bringing to the intention of other developers. This product does not meet these requirements - it simply belongs in another thread; a point I have made more that once, but that Anny Lee has chosen not to do.
Would have been better to look at the topic and to understand what you write! Each software subject undergoes development, both in terms of development and to its users. For some of them even stopped maintenance, so there is no validated or insufficiently popular, and developed or abandoned. Stop the subject of misrepresentation. Тopic simply: ARM-GCC development resources
Choko Boko wrote: > Would have been better to look at the topic and to understand what you > write! Yes, you should do that. The difference is proven resources that hundreds or even thousands of ARM developers have found useful over time, as opposed to some work in progress currently used by perhaps a handful of people. If it had not been for the blatant attempt to deceive (and this treat the community like fools), this product might warrant serious discussion. Start your own thread on it and I will gladly engage constructively; but this is not the place. I note that since its first mention here, the web-site has been improved vastly - to the point that it is not even clear what this product is, which was not the case previously. Regarding independent recommendation, a user who registers just after Anny Lee's last post and has only ever posted in support of Anny Lee to this thread does not count, since in all likelihood, you either are Anny Lee, or an acquaintance. It would be interesting to hear from someone who has been registered here since before this discussion who is using this product.
Unfortunately, you continue to be made to an investigator and judge people! Nobody requires you this. Would have for himself to draw conclusions. And what are you told people in the forum once in topic GCC saw that advertise IAR product? Look at your top post. Become annoying people, so let me stop this meaningless argument!
Choko Boko wrote: > And what are you told people in the forum once in topic GCC saw that > advertise IAR product? Look at your top post. SevensAndNines.com is hosted by IAR but is nonetheless a vendor agnostic resource. It provides information and articles on ARM based devices from multiple vendors and a community forum. I neither promoted IAR products nor do I work for IAR. The comparison with your post does not stand up.
