openwrt compile tool chain
Cross compiler tool chain is to compile, link, handling and debugging cross-platform architecture code.For cross-development tool chain, in the file name with a prefix to distinguish native tool chains.For example, mipsel-openwrt-linux representation is mipsel-openwrt cross compiler tool chain; mipsel-openwrt-linux-gcc representations are using gcc compiler. In addition to the architecture specific compiler options , its usage is the same with the linux , so Linux programming helpful for embedded linux.
So what is the difference between gcc and mipsel-openwrt-linux-gcc is it? Difference is gcc C language compiler under linux, compiled in the local implementation of the program, while openwrt-linux-gcc cross-platform C language compiler under linux, translation of the program on the target machine (eg openwrt platform) execution, embedded developers should use embedded cross compiler tool chain.

Linux using wget:


Then extract it to your working directory:

tar -xjf OpenWrt-Toolchain-ramips-for-mipsel_24kec+dsp-gcc-4.8-linaro_uClibc-

Cross compiler tools we need in this directory `OpenWrt-Toolchain-ramips-for-mipsel_24kec + dsp-gcc-4.8-linaro_uClibc- / toolchain-mipsel_24kec + dsp_gcc-4.8-linaro_uClibc- / bin `
Common tools:
mipsel-openwrt-linux-gcc gcc compiler
mipsel-openwrt-linux-gdb debugger
mipsel-openwrt-linux-ld linker
mipsel-openwrt-linux-as Assembler
Use and the corresponding tool under linux same.
Here is an mipsel-openwrt-linux-gcc compiler small example helloworld

vi helloworld.c

Enter the following:

#include <stdio.h>
int main(void){
    printf("hello world!\n");
    return 0;

Then use mipsel-openwrt-linux-gcc to compile

mipsel-openwrt-linux-gcc helloworld.c -o helloworld

Then copy the file to your WRTnode development board, here we put to the /tmp directory



hello world!

Well, little program to here.
