Discussion:
Does mipsel-embedded build?

I'm trying to understand how the RTL build process fits together.
Looking at the makefile for embedded it seems that there may be a couple
of files missing for mipsel-embedded.  Firstly make complains about "no
rule to make target mipsel/startup.s" probably because that file is
missing from trunk (at least I cannot find it either). Secondly the cpu
units such as pic32mx1xxfxxxb etc. are also missing.

There is a comment for svn rev. 27188: "partially merged the
mips-embedded branch from Michael Ring".  I couldn't see any subsequent
commits related to mipsel-embedded.

Can anyone else build mipsel-embedded RTL with trunk?  I've built
ppcrossmipsel compiler so far.

Unfortunately a few files are missing in trunk, however I can provide
patches to you to make things work, if you are in hurry then please send
me an e-mail.

I am currently working together with Alfred Glänzer (who does
fpcupdeluxe) to integrate his port for Microchip SAMC/D controllers in
my small framework for embedded controllers, next step after this is
done will be to also better support PIC32 chips, so if you have a little
time you will be able to use working support for PIC32 via fpcup deluxe.

I can also provide the missing parts to the core defs to include those
parts in trunk fpc if they are willing to do so.

Of course, the only problem we need to handle are the huge controller specific files. But maybe those can be keep separate.

Hi Florian!

I have already reduced size to the same size to the size as on other
platforms, so a lot less space will be used. Please give me a little
time to cleanup my patches...

On providing headers seperate, a loooonnnnnngggggg time ago Jeppe
created a (close to genious) patch that allowed to use a configuration
file to inject embedded controllers at runtime, but this never was
implemented in trunk.

I have tons of .pas files for embedded controllers (complete STM Line,
now also complete SAMC/SAMD line of controllers and PIC32) that I can
all provide as a patch but this increases the emedded directory a lot
and 95% of all headers will most likely never get used. Having the
mechanism that Jeppe once developed would allow people to install just
the files they need, keeping the embedded directory clean & lean.

Perhaps this is something to implement in the future, what do you think?


FYI, here are the current patches for SAMCD+STM32 family:

True, I don't remember though were the patch was available.

Yes, this could be done for sure.

Ah, now I remember the other problem with the controller units: they are BSD style licensed because of the license of
the original headers, so we cannot include them into FPC.

Thanks for the offer, I am only testing the build rules to write an fpmake
equivalent for the RTL. So not really urgent at all.

Most likely Jeppe sent the patch only to me, I have forwarded the patch
to ***@freepascal.org so that you can get an idea on what he did.

Forgive me, I am a license dummy, can the licensing be handled properly
with something like Jeppe's approach? If yes then I would love to
maintain a repro of controller units, I can automagically generate
Headers for most relevant microcontrollers currently available.
