The GNU Compiler (GCC) is the entry level C/C++ compiler in DS-5.
Enhanced GNU Compiler
Pre-built and validated version of the GNU compiler for ARM Linux featuring enhanced support for the ARM architecture.
- Improved support for the popular mixed 32/16-bit Thumb®-2 instruction set used on the ARM Cortex processors
- Support for the latest ARM Cortex-A series processors - Cortex-A5, Cortex-A8, and Cortex-A9
- Based on GCC 4.4.1
To enable you to quickly get started with Linux development, DS-5 includes a full Linux example that can be run on an ARM Versatile board or the integrated RTSM model of a Cortex-A8 SoC.
The prebuilt GNU Compilation Tools have been extensively validated to ensure correct operation, including:
- Completed the FSF GNU Compiler Collection regression testsuite
- Validation by building the ARM Embeded Linux examples
