GCC in EDK

The PowerPC compiler, called powerpc-eabi-gcc is based off of GCC version 2.95.3-4. The full GCC programming support manual is located at: http://gcc.gnu.org/onlinedocs/gcc/ . The EDK support compiler options are located in the Xilinx Embedded System Tools Guide: http://www.xilinx.com/ise/embedded/est_rm.pdf

Although gcc in general has support for many languages, powerpc-eabi-gcc has support for only C and C++. The main reasons for this are that all of the hardware driver APIs are coded in C, and that C and C++ are currently the most portable programming languages available.
