make the files in the
lib directory gives me this error:
➜ lib git:(master) ✗ make ../bin/lcc -Wa-l -c -o floor.o floor.s ../bin/lcc: ../bin/lcc: cannot execute binary file make: *** [floor.o] Error 126
file on the
lcc binary reveals that an ancient version of the lcc compiler was bundled with the 2.1.5 release:
➜ lib git:(master) ✗ file ../bin/lcc ../bin/lcc: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), for GNU/Linux 2.0.0, not stripped
Ok, this won't work on my machine. I'll attempt to fix this by switching all references to
clang in the Makefile.
The next dependency is a tool called
maccer, Michael Hope's macro preprocessor. This tool has the same issue as lcc:
➜ lib git:(master) ✗ make ../bin/maccer -o floor.s floor.ms ../bin/maccer: ../bin/maccer: cannot execute binary file make: *** [floor.s] Error 126 ➜ lib git:(master) ✗ file ../bin/maccer ../bin/maccer: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), for GNU/Linux 2.0.0, not stripped
I can't for the life of me find the source of this, but I did find a modified version called MaccerX.
Is MaccerX a viable alternative to the original maccer? Has anyone successfully built GBDK 2.1.5 on a modern platform with a modern compiler? I expect to run into more of these issues as I attempt to use SDK tools from 15+ years ago.
Well I found maccer, it was in the same GBDK repo. Looking to see if I can make a native build now. I'm not sure the maccer source and be built without doc++ (whatever that is), so looking into that now.
