I don't know if I'm the right one to answer your question, but I'll
If i describe something you already know just skip that part.
SDCC means 'Small Device C Compiler' where the 'Small Device' is a
microcontroller, more exactly, as I understand, a 8 bit
microcontroller of that types described on the homepage.
A .exe File is a Microsoft-Windows executable File. Other operating
systems use other 'singns' to show the os that a special file is a
executable (the x attribute in unix-like operating systems).
Microcontrollers _usually_ don't run a operating system. They only ru=
the programs they find in their memory (where you have to put it
first). The don't care about filenames, extensions or attributes
because the don't have a filesystem :-)
So you get a file named not .exe but .ihex or someting else (I'm just
starting with sdcc). That is a file which contains the 'binary code'
of your Program as hexadecimal numbers. Your program you have
installed on your computer that is used to download your self written
program to the microcontroller takes that numbers and transfers them
into the memory of the microcontroller which can make a sense out of
If you do not know what I'm talking about then you are maybe in the
wrong place here. Maybe you want to compile programs for windows. Try
There are even nice toolkits and ide's (I think) for gcc and Windows.
The (seldom) times I have to program on windows I use SciTe as an IDE
or xemacs ;-)
If you think you are in the right place you maybe want to switch to
sdcc-users because sdcc-devel is for the developpers of sdcc :-)
