So, I'll just mention this in passing for those who are interested in C++ in addition to C. (If you prefer C only, feel free to ignore it.) There's a thread I thought was interesting regarding using C++ with embedded systems over on LinkedIn http://www.linkedin.com/groups/C-firmware-development-embedded-system-37565.S.252210483?view=&srchtype=discussedNews&gid=37565&item=252210483&type=member&trk=eml-anet_dig-b_pd-ttl-hdp&fromEmail=&ut=3UNSr99M7Ts5Q1 Hope something takes off with Rob Landley's suggestion about a site for embedded Linux from Scratch information. I'd be very interested in seeing further information on pros and cons and efficiencies of using various libraries and applications (like make style utilities, bash-like shells, etc.). Would also be useful to know what's been done, what could be redone better, what's in progress, etc. Seems like there's a very good knowledge base from the people on the musl mailing list and the members give more informative responses (regarding performance, efficiency, algorithms, what's already been coded) than many of the posts I read on some of the LFS mailing lists. It's especially helpful when you don't have time to comb through all the code of the various implementations available to just be able to ask others who have already investigated and found good working solutions what they recommend. I'd be very interested in hearing opinions and pros and cons on other utilities and libraries. However, it just feels off-topic to ask on this list since it's more peripherally related to using musl even though the most interesting responses would probably come from here. lfs has a chat list for topics that don't fall into the other lfs mailing categories. Maybe something similar could be useful or maybe some resource for newbies to embedded systems could fill the purpose. Sincerely, Laura Content of type "text/html" skipped
