+This document describes the RTEMS development environment. Discussions are
+provided for the following topics:
- the directory structure used by RTEMS,
-- usage of the GNU Make utility within the RTEMS
- development environment,
+- usage of the GNU Make utility within the RTEMS development environment,
- sample applications, and
- the RTEMS specific utilities.
-RTEMS was designed as a reusable software component.
-Highly reusable software such as RTEMS is typically distributed
-in the form of source code without providing any support tools.
-RTEMS is the foundation for a complex family of facilities
-including board support packages, device drivers, and support
-libraries. The RTEMS Development Environment is not a CASE
-tool. It is a collection of tools designed to reduce the
-complexity of using and enhancing the RTEMS family. Tools are
-provided which aid in the management of the development,
-maintenance, and usage of RTEMS, its run-time support
-facilities, and applications which utilize the executive.
-
-A key component of the RTEMS development environment
-is the GNU family of free tools. This is robust set of
-development and POSIX compatible tools for which source code is
-freely available. The primary compilers, assemblers, linkers,
-and make utility used by the RTEMS development team are the GNU
-tools. They are highly portable supporting a wide variety of
-host computers and, in the case of the development tools, a wide
-variety of target processors.
-
-It is recommended that the RTEMS developer become
-familiar with the RTEMS Development Environment before
-proceeding with any modifications to the executive source tree.
-The source code for the executive is very modular and source
-code is divided amongst directories based upon functionality as
-well as dependencies on CPU and target board. This organization
-is aimed at isolating and minimizing non-portable code. This
-has the immediate result that adding support for a new CPU or
-target board requires very little "wandering" around the source
-tree.
