Desktop Development Environment
About the DDEThe Desktop Development Environment (DDE) is an essential suite of tools required to build RISC OS. It dates back to the days when Acorn developed RISC OS and is derived from the in-house development tools used there. As such, there are still strong ties between the RISC OS source code and the DDE. It includes a number of useful tools including:
- C compiler optimised to producing efficient ARM code
- ARM assembler - more powerful and advanced than any current Open Source ARM assembler
- Makefile utility
- Desktop debugger
- GUI resource file editor
- Object compression/decompression tools
- Intelligent ARM disassembler
- ARM Cortex A8 instruction timing simulator
- Licence to use tools and libraries for commercial products.
- Requires RISC OS 3.5 and above.
- Suitable for running on and producing both 26 & 32 bit versions of RISC OS
- Comprehensive documentation
- Updated C compiler (including support for C99)
- Updated manuals
- Produces faster run-time code
- Major and minor bug fixes
- Extended compiler features (instruction scheduling, inline assembler, etc.)
- Reorganised for CD or USB distribution and ease of installation and use
