About this manual

frontcover 72-TDS-487-00

This manual is the Toolset Reference Manual and it is designed to cover the following products:

  • ST20 toolset;
  • ANSI C toolset;
  • occam 2 toolset;

for the following hosts:

  • IBM 386 PC compatible running MS-DOS
  • Sun 4 systems running SunOS or Solaris.

This manual provides reference material for each tool in the toolsets including command line options, syntax and error messages. Many of the tools in the toolset are generic to several toolset products e.g. the ST20 toolset, the ANSI C toolset and the occam 2 toolset and the documentation reflects this. Examples are given in C. The appendices provide details of toolset conventions, processor types, the ANSI C assembler, memory configuration files and the configuration languages.

A list of the tools supported by your particular toolset is given in the 'User Guide' which accompanies your toolset. References in the documentation to tools, languages or processor targets which do not apply to your toolset, should be ignored.
