Family or class of processor based around a common instruction set. RTEMS
architectures follow the GCC architecture model as RTEMS needs an GCC
architecture compiler for each support RTEMS architecture.
GNU Binary Utilities such as the assembler ``as``, linker ``ld`` and a
range of other tools used in the development of software.
Board Support Package is a specific configuration RTEMS can be built
for. An RTEMS install process installs specific library and headers files
for a single BSP. A BSP optimises RTEMS to a specific target hardware.
A continuous inteagration build server.
A compiler built to run on a Host that generate code for another
Dynamically Linker Library used on Windows.
GNU Compiler Tool chain. It is the GNU C/C++ compiler, binutils and GDB.
The computer and operating system that hosts the RTEMS development tools
such as the compiler, linker and debugger.
Minimal GNU system for Windows that lets GCC built programs use the
standard Windows operating system DLLs. It lets you build native Windows
programs with the GNU GCC compiler.
Minimal GNU system for 64bit Windows. MinGW64 is not the MinGW project.
Minimal System 2 is a fork of the MinGW project's MSYS tool and the MinGW
MSYS tool is a fork of Cygwin project. The Cygwin project provides a POSIX
emulation layer for Windows so POSIX software can run on Windows. MSYS is a
minimal version that is just enough to let ``configure`` scripts run. MSYS
has a simplified path structure to make it easier to building native Windows
Portable Operating System Interface is a standard that lets software be
portable between compliant operating systems.
A path used when building a package so all parts of the package reside
under that path.
RTEMS Source Builder is part of the RTEMS Tools Project. It builds packages
such as the tools for the RTEMS operating system.
The Real-Time Executive for Multiprocessor Systems or RTEMS is an open
source fully featured Real Time Operating System or RTOS that supports a
variety of open standard application programming interfaces (API) and
interface standards such as POSIX and BSD sockets.
A target is the hardware or simulator a BSP built executable runs on.
RTEMS test suite located in the ``testsuites/`` directory.
Waf build system. For more information see http://www.waf.io/
