Development tools

The development tools are the same than the used to develop the Linux kernel: GCC, binutils, make, etc.

It is possible to do cross development (host-target) and stand alone development, that is, use the same computer to compile and run/test the embedded system.

Programming languages

The main programming language is "C". But it is also possible to use C++.

Ted Baker reported a preliminary porting of the ADA language to the RTLinux system.

API compatibility

POSIX 1003.13/PSE51-compatible.
