Hello guys! 

Is there any manual or tutorial about generating elf file (.elf) from assembly code (.s) in Eclipse. I can't find any documentation about this way of programming.

If you feed a .s file into gcc it will just assemble it. 

IIRC if you use .S then it is also processed by the C pre-processor (which is often useful). 

 

Depending on what you are actually doing, writing the code in C might generate good enough object code (and is easier). 

 

OTOH I wouldn't even try to use an IDE's build scheme for anuthing complex. 

Write your own makefile and linker script.
