Mixed Language Projects (C/C++ with Assembly)

Abstract

This chapter explains the needs for mixed language projects, and how simple assembly code files can be created for ARM®, IAR, and GNU Compiler Collection tool chains. It also covers various ways to merge assembly code into C language projects, followed by a quick introduction of the ARM Architecture Procedure Call standard specification which defines the interface between C and assembly codes, as well as program code examples.
