Hello Everyone.

I am trying to figure out how to setup a target independent way to work with c programming. Obviously for being here I work with embedded programming but I am also interested to be able to write C or other language programs for automating various stuff in an OS environment.

I have experience with the usual Atmel Studio program and debug way but I want to break through vendor specific software and use something more generic like a good code editor combined with scripting for building, compiling and linking etc. 

So far I managed to run a program, for SAMD21, in Eclipse in debugging mode but I was not really happy with whole process. 

I also tried to setup VSCode stumbled over my huge lack of knowledge of what is going on in the background of an IDE and I am looking for a book to cover the basics of what is needed to setup a toolchain for a language to compile and debug and to be able to replicate the process in a windows machine if possible.

different toolchains have different requirements. There's the likes of PlatformIO that supports many different architectures and toolchains. It uses VSCode and a swag of other scripts to do its job. The build side is handled by SCONS if I remember correctly.

As for a book that covers it all - none that I know of. There's so many different requirements and not a wide demand for such knowlege - most of us pick up what we need on the fly. There's plenty of info on the internet as most of the stuff is open source.
