It does float! And doesn't get soggy in milk! :)

Jaguar/skunkboard debugging using m68k gcc fully functional.

Post by a31chris » Sat Jul 06, 2013 6:55 am

I don't know if anyone here is interested in this but I recently got the latest m68k ELF gcc working with the skunkboard and debug. With the help of a few awesome people GCC now works natively with the Jaguar and Skunkboard.

http://www.jaguarsector.com/index.php?showtopic=33796

Using the m68k GCC compiler you can theoretically program in C++ etc. For those who don't have a skunkboard but would still want to try out GCCs C++ aspect on the Jag you can easily convert the ELF files to standard Jaguar a.out format to run on the current Jaguar emulators out there with the change of a single linker line.

If anyone has questions just ask and I can summarize everything here rather than digging through the other thread if they don't want to go through all of that.

Since JSII is gone now forever, I will if it's ok, recreate this info here at some point soon. It was a lot of work. It was fast and easy to get started with what I posted and I don't want it to be lost.

Totally cool by me, post away.
Oh I always assumed you were the one going by JagChris, correct?
