Hi,

Now I'm trying building an eCos project on OVP ARM7 platform.
May I use the toolchain provied from eCos instead of OVP?

When I checked ARM7.makefile.include located in
C:\Program Files\Imperas\lib\Windows\CrossCompiler
I found the LD flag '-limperas'. Is it required during compiling?

Best Regards,
C.H.

Yes you can use toolchains provided by other vendors, the only possible issue is the format of the executable provided by that toolchain, but I assume this will be a .elf file, which is the most common format.

For further information on loading different formats, please take a look at this thread

No this is not required, this library contains some additional functions which are used in the Imperas professional tools.

Please let me know if you have any further issues which need resolving

So far it's clear for me!
