D.gnu - Usablility of GDC ARM

reply John Demme <me teqdruid.com> writes:
I've heard talk about people using GDC on ARM chips.  I might be starting a
project soon on a Gumstix machine, which uses an XScale chip, which is
ARMv5TE architecture (PXA207, I think).

Anyway, I'd like to be able to program in D.  Is anyone using GDC on ARM? 
XScale, specifically?  What version of GDC?  Does anyone know if Tango
works on ARM?  Is it usable, robust?  I'd like to setup a cross-compiler. 
Is this doable, easy?

Basically, I'm looking for someone with experience for GDC on ARM to comment
on the experience.

Thanks.

 I've set up a GDC cross compiler for the Nintendo DS, which has two
 ARM CPU's. I couldn't get either Phobos or Tango working, since I was
 running without an OS and so a bunch of stuff was missing. Really
 simple D apps would work though.

Might suggest some links while I'm at it: http://blog.dev-scene.com/oopman/2007/03/22/compiling-gdc-for-devkitarm-r20/ http://blog.dev-scene.com/abscissa/2007/04/02/d-on-gbands-progress-thanks-to-oopman/ Anders

Thanks for the input; I'll take a look at the links, as well. I'll be running on a minimal linux, so hopefully I'll have more luck with Tango. -- ~John Demme me teqdruid.com
