eclipse tool-chain settings to match monitor program

Hi...has anyone tried editing the tool-chain/settings in eclipse to make project in IDE environment instead of using "Monitor Program"...most of the time I use eclipse to edit code and for my DE1-SoC board I use the monitor program to build the project...it would be nice to get rid of this second step and have eclipse to the build as well...let me know.

In the nios 2 help files is "My First Nios II Software Tutorial." It has all the information you need for this.

This only talks about Nios II IDE...I am looking for build settings for HPS...I think I finally got it but in case anyone else wants to try, here is what you have to do: 

 

1. Under project properties C/C++ build settings  

1.1 Change command to arm-linux-gnueabihf-gcc 

1.2 Define device family in the preprocessor (e.g. soc_cv_av) 

1.3 Include /ip/altera/hps/altera_hps/hwlib and /ip/altera/hps/altera_hps/hwlib/<device family> 

 

2. Set the linker command to arm-linux-gnueabihf-gcc 

 

3. Add ds-5\sw\gcc\arm-linux-gnueabihf\bin and ds-5\sw\gcc\bin to the PATH variable under environment. 

 

This should do it. Let me know if there are any issues.

Sorry, my mistake. I should have thought of HPS when you said you were using the De1-SoC board. The compiler you mentioned is for linux applications. I don't know if it makes any difference, but you might try the bare metal compiler arm-altera-eabi-gcc. It is located in <altera directory>\embedded\host_tools\mentor\gnu\arm\baremetal\bin
