PC port & Open Watcom

Posted by antoine-zen on September 13, 2007

I'm using FreeRTOS under FreeDOS and I read in the doc that the FreeRTOS code has to be compilated with Open Watcom C compiler. But I find Open Watcom terrible ! Is there any possibility to use GCC instead of Open Watcom ?

Tanks a lot for help !

You can also use one of the old Borland C compilers. I think this is free as well. You could create a GCC port.

Does compiling FreeRTOS works without TASM witch is not included with free distribution of the Old Borland C compiler ? I don't think so.

Tank but I have no time to write a GCC port.
