What is cross toolchain

Posted on 12.06.2018 by Paz
The compiler of choice is the GNU compiler collection, well known as gcc. A Canadian build is the process of building a toolchain on machine A, so that it runs on machine B and generates code for machine.

So, what are those components in a toolchain.

A toolchain is the set of compiler linker librarian any other tools you need to produce the executable shared libraries, etc for the target. The GNU Binutils is the first component of a toolchain. Dlltool - Creates files for building and using DLLs. The compiler turns source code in C, C, whatever into assembly code. It's usually not really necessary.
It's typically needed when you want a native GCC on your target platform, without building it on your target platform. I have had confusion over this terminology for a long time. Bfd - An alternative to the GNU linker.
