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
Can you help with this problem?
