New to arm programming
Greetings, I just subscribed. I am a longtime Linux user, and have been running
Debian on PowerPC and x86 for about a year.
It looks like I am about to get some work doing embedded programming on an
arm-based chip. I've never programmed arm processors before, and would like to
find out more about them.
I think it would also be helpful to me if I got some kind of arm-based desktop
machine that I could run Linux on. This wouldn't be so much to develop software
for this chip, as to have a convenient platform to study things like arm
assembly code and kernel programming in a way that would be easier to do than
working on an embedded chip. Can you recommend a machine to buy and tell me
where I could find it? Is the Corel Netwinder still manufactured? One of those
would probably work well for me.
Finally, can you recommend some books and websites I can read to learn about arm
assembly code and the processor architecture?
Maybe later I can help work on linux for arm, but I can't promise anything at
the moment because I've been too busy for some time to contribute to free
software as much as I would like to. But this new consulting work is very
promising for me, so maybe before too long I will be able to afford to take some
time off and write Free code.
