I am having a 'devil of a time' finding the source code for the AVR version of the binutil tools.  My desire is to study the code simply to understand the code and possible tweak some features as a learning experience.  In particular, the avr_objcopy source code is the file I am interested in studying.

 

Would someone be so kind to 'lead a crippled horse to water'?

thanks

Jim

This page (top google hit) doesn't get you to them?

http://avr-eclipse.sourceforge.n...

 

Scroll down to 'Build from Sources'.

 

There's also stuff on this page:

https://www.microchip.com/mplab/...

 

Perhaps this:

For objcopy is there really a difference between the Atmel version and the freely accessible GNU version?

LINK <--- binutils source

 

 

Note that this is binutils source. You need to compile it with certain switches to make AVR binutils. Also, if you are building your own toolchain, things need to be done in a specific order. See this site: LINK <--- how to compile

 

Hope this helps.

 

(edit to add): If compiling GCG, be sure to first run the script "contrib/download_prerequsites" (in the GCC source directory) before compiling.
