Adding lib, specifically gnu readline

Hi - I am porting some code to an embedded ARM (Cortex-A9) in an SOC using DS 5. The code uses readline.h and history.h to handle command line parsing. I really want to keep them because they work great.

My question is - are these libraries available for the ARM and specifically how do I add a new lib under DS 5?

Best
Kevin.

  • To follow up on this. I found that the Linux build environment I am using provides a 'make menuconfig' option for buildroot that included optionally adding the readline lib to rootfs. Once I had that, I took the .so files and linked them in my code along with the .h files. I have running code now and learned a few things about Make along the way.
