ARM Realview Compiler Port for Philips LPC

Posted by Kenneth Trussell on March 1, 2006
Keil has been purchased by ARM and will be transitioning to the ARM Realview compiler so I was told by a Keil engineer. I am just beginning to work with FreeRTOS and with the Keil development package. Has anyone tried to convert the Keil CARM port for the ARM7 LPC2129 to RealView? I have just begun and am having trouble with the __asm statements in the portmacro.h file. There are notes about not being able to access the LR register directly in the Realview docs but I think my problem is more fundamental than that. I am getting a whole bunc of errors, but I see "#52: expected a macro parameter name" a lot.

I know of at least one person using FreeRTOS with RealView but they are doing so under a commercial license (because they could not use the GPL) so I do not have their source code :-( but it shows it must be possible.

I believe that the asm macro's need converting into __asm functions that can be declared within C files.

Sorry I cannot be more helpful.

Thanks Richard. When I get it ported, I will certainly share. Unfortunately, I am under the gun to get the project done, so I will probably develop the entire project in Keil C and use the port that exists for that. Eventually, I hope to be able to port to Realview. If anyone else has an interest, I will be glad to work with them. I do not expect it to be difficult, I just don't have the time to spare for a couple of weeks.
