Is there a description somewhere on the net on how to use/modify the IAR IDE to generate linux executable files? In plain english please as I am only a level zero linux novice! This is specific to the ARM9 TS7200 board I shall try the TS7200 forum as well, but I understand there is a lot of expertise in here, so might as well ask!! Thanks Tom
>I shall try the TS7200 forum as well[...} It might be easier to send an e-mail to the IAR-support. Although this forum as a rather general most of the readers/writers here use the GNU toolchain. From the few things I have done with Linux on embedded targets I can just recomment to use a Linux-system (maybe in virtual hardwware) to host the building system.
>It might be easier to send an e-mail to the IAR-support Yes thanks I should try along those lines. In practice, would this adaptation amount to little more than including the right precompiled object files, a new startup asm, and maybe a few other files in the project? or am I missing something? I know the IAR compiler can generate the right linux-compatible format binaries. But I can't understand why IAR haven't provided facilities for generating Linux from the start. Are there any licensing or patent issues as well? thanks Tom
