gcc plugin on windows cross compiler
Hello, I'm using GNU ARM embedded toolchain on windows and I'm interested in developing a gcc plugin to add some custom C++ generalized attributes to compiler parser.
I'm writing since I didn't find the compiler plugin include directory in the window release 6-q1-2017 and I would like to know why.
I checked out installer script, included in source distribution, and I found that in post-building after install of built executable the plugin directory is erased (line 789 in build-toolchain
Could you please tell me if the gcc plugin feature is available in windows distribution and, if it is, how to correctly set up a toolchain to develop a plugin on that platform?
I also tried to develop such a kind of plugin on linux and it works fine.
I tried to cross compile the same plugin to windows without success, mingw compiler complains about some sys/xxx.h include files that are missing (that is, as far as I know, correct).
In order to perform the cross compilation I installed the Ubuntu linux suggested in the source code installation guide "The Build Process of (GNU Tools for ARM Embedded Processors 6-2017-q1-update) 2017-02"
If the cross compilation of the plugin from linux is the correct way, could you please give me some directions on how to complete it?
Thanks in advance
