This tutorial describes how to build a project from command-line, using the GCC build tools included in the Kinetis Design Studio (KDS) tool from NXP. KDS uses open-source components including the Eclipse IDE and GCC build tools. The Eclipse IDE can be configured to automatically create make files for the project. After KDS creates these make files, they can be used to build the project from the command-line, without using the KDS IDE.
This tutorial uses an example for the Kinetis KE04Z microcontroller (MCU), using the FRDM-KE04Z development board. The following software is used in these tutorial steps:
