GnuPoc enables the development EPOC applications using alternative operating systems like Linux and other Unices. The following SDKs have been ported to GnuPoc: ER5 (Psion Series5, Psion netbook, etc.), Quartz 6.0, Crystal 6.0 (Nokia 9210, 9290), and Nokia Series 60 (Nokia 7650, etc.).
CUT is a unit-testing framework for C, C++, and Objective-C. Unlike other unit testing tools, CUT doesn't strive to be an SUnit clone. It automates a lot of the drudge work often encountered when using other unit testing packages for the C family of programming languages. CUT may also be used to unit-test assembly language software in some circumstances.
prtpacker (Portable Resource Tree Packer, pronounced PIRT-Packer) is a tool for creating C or C++ source code from external program resources such as images, text, or data. These resources can be arranged in a tree structure much like a typical file system. After compiling and linking the resulting source code you can access the resource tree from within your software through a simple API. Be aware that all resources stay in memory and cannot be easily deallocated.
KMD is a multi-processor debugger. It can debug with hardware boards over serial ports or with software emulators (ARM and MIPS emulators are included in the project). Using the pipe option you can debug over the network or any other communication medium. It can load many executable formats such as ELF, and display and follow the original source even from multiple source file programs. There is support for breakpoints and watchpoints which can trap on specific data (such as loading or executing specific instructions). Support for other features such as FPGA's is also available, allowing loading or any control required to drive a specific hardware device. The project uses chump to allow disassembly and line assembly. Chump also allows new architectures to be easily added without the need to recompile the system. Communication with the backend is done using two pipes/fifos using a simple set of codes. Back end communication program can be created using very little memory on the target device.
prc-eclipse is an Eclipse plugin that provides support for the GNU-based PalmOS development tools, prc-tools. It provides two useful features: The first is to allow the use of the Eclipse graphical debugger interface instead of the textual gdb interface. The second is (searchable) access to PalmSource's extensive online help through Eclipse's built-in help system. These combine with the C/C++ Development Tools to make a powerful development environment.
PTXdist is a build system ("executable documentation") for compiling root filesystems for embedded systems. PTXdist is based on a KConfig configuration system in combination with a set of rules which describe how all the source packages out there have to be tweaked to be compiled into a proper root filesystem. Once a configuration has been developed, reproducing it is as easy as "ptxdist go".
