ARM toolchain integration?
« on: July 11, 2006, 06:07:16 pm »
Has anyone attempted to integrate the ARM RVDS toolchain with SlickEdit v11 auto-dependency, auto-build (vsbuild) feature?  I'm currently using the GNU C/C++ wizard and overriding the compiler, linker, and librarian in the GNU C Options dialogs, but that's a little ugly.  Also, the armcc compiler does not automatically invoke the assembler for assembly source files, so I have to split my project to separate the C and ASM/S files.  Yuck!

If anyone has a better approach, I'm all ears!

You are on the right track modifying the projects generated by the GNU wizard.  You could take that one step further by setting up a project template for the ARM toolchain based on the GNU wizard template.  Then you would not need to make changes every time.

To do this:

1) go to Project > New...
2) Click on Customize...
3) Click on New...
4) Name your new project type, for example "GNU ARM C/C++ Wizard"
5) Select to copy settings from "GNU C/C++ Wizard"
6) When the project properties dialog comes up, make the changes to compiler, linker,
    etc like you usually do in order to use the ARM toolchain.
7) Click OK when you are done.

Now, when you go to Project > New..., there should be an entry for "GNU ARM C/C++ Wizard", which will generate a project with your ARM toolchain settings.
