ELLCC 0.1.33 Released

A new binary release of the ELLCC cross compilation tool chain is available.
ELLCC is a pre-packaged set of tools designed to support cross compilation
for a variety of target processors.

This release includes pre-built binaries for 64-bit ARM Linux and
supports the -coverage option to do code coverage. You can see an example
of coverage output at http://ellcc.org/coverage

Unfortunately, I haven’t had time to debug build issues with the MinGW build. As a result the binaries of this release for this host are not available. If anyone is interested in looking into the build failure, patches welcome!

ELLCC includes:

  • ecc (a clang/LLVM based C/C++ compiler)
  • binutils
  • GDB
  • QEMU (on x86_64 Linux hosts)

The ELLCC run-time libraries are supplied pre-built for all targets and
are all covered with BSD-like licenses:

  • libc++ The C++ standard library
  • musl The POSIX compliant C library
  • compiler-rt Low level compiler support
  • expat XML parsing
  • libedit Command history
  • ncurses Terminal handling
  • zlib Compression/decompression
  • curl URL syntax data transfer
  • libevent Event notification
  • mbed TLS Transport Layer Security
  • c-ares Asynchronous DNS
  • libssh2 Client side SSH2
  • libmetalink Metalink support
  • openldap Lightweight directory access protocol
  • nanomsg Several common communication patterns

ELLCC is entirely self hosting.

The tool chain can build programs for ARM, Mips, PowerPC, and x86 Linux and
stand-alone targets and x86 Windows systems.

Pre-built binaries are available for ARM, Mips, and x86 Linux host systems
as well as x86_64 Windows and Mac OS X hosts.

All host systems can build programs for all the supported targets.

Available targets are listed here.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I finally got around to using sabotage’s netbsd curses. I like it very much.
    It has replaced ncurses in ELLCC.
