Building a Linux cross toolchain

A very common need during an embedded projet development is to have the set of tools required to compile program for a platform different from the one used for the development itself.

After numerous requests from LeGosse, I finally set up a central web page where you can find links to my various web sites!

I decided to have this page in English, rather than my natural language (French), as I want to address an international audience.

Depending on my will (and my free time!), I will update this page less or more often, adding material, links, or whatever i find interesting to others!

Of course, you are welcome to post comments!
