homebrew-mspgcc

These are Homebrew formulae for mspgcc, the compiler toolchain for the MSP430 microcontroller. The repository includes binutils, gcc, libc, and the mcu files.

To get everything, type:

$ brew tap sampsyo/mspgcc
$ brew install msp430-libc

Since libc is the top of the dependency chain, this should suffice to get everything you need.

$ msp430-gcc --version
msp430-gcc (GCC) 4.7.0 20120322 (mspgcc dev 20120911)
...

These formulae are quick n' dirty and undoubtedly need some improvement (missing dependencies, brittle workarounds, etc.). I also haven't (yet) included gdb or mspdebug.

One manual step is required to get a working system. Annoyingly, since the --prefix= compile option for each of these packages is different, each of the various tools can't find required files installed by other packages. To consolidate the various lib pieces under a common directory, run:

$ $(brew --prefix)/Homebrew/Library/Taps/sampsyo/homebrew-mspgcc/addlinks.sh

This script symlinks everything from all the packages into msp430 under the msp430-gcc keg. This means your root for the MSP430 toolchain is something like /usr/local/opt/msp430-gcc/msp430 (which would be /usr/local/msp430 on a "normal" installation).
