Chapter 11. Getting Started


The eCos Configuration Tool is used to tailor eCos at source level, prior to compilation or assembly, and provides a configuration file and a set of files used to build user applications. The sources and other files used for building a configuration are provided in a component repository, which is loaded when the eCos Configuration Tool is invoked. The component repository includes a set of files defining the structure of relationships between the Configuration Tool and other components, and is written in a Component Definition Language (CDL). For a description of the concepts underlying component configuration, see Chapter 22.

Note: This documentation relates to version 4.0 of the eCosPro eCos Host Tools and above. If you are using an earlier version of the eCosPro eCos Host Tools, the behaviour and screenshots documented may be slightly different from what you could encounter and certain features may not be available to you.
