prc-tools-remix

Build Dev env setup

Overview

This repository is an archive of prc-tools 2.3 and its GCC cross-compilation toolchain, with patches enabling it to build and run on modern Linux and macOS systems.

prc-tools is a collection of tools supporting C and C++ programming for Palm OS. It supplies a full GCC cross-compilation toolchain for m68k and ARM, as well as Palm OS-specific utilities.

As the Palm OS platform faded into oblivion, prc-tools appears to be have been unmaintained since 2003 and no longer compiles under recent versions of GCC and Clang. This repo includes a number of patches to enable it to build and run on modern Linux and macOS systems.
