Configure toolchain-based build process


Control toolchain-based build process for the creation of a PIL application.




rtw.connectivity.MakefileBuilder(componentArgs, targetApplicationFramework, exeExtension) creates an object with these arguments:

  • componentArgs - An rtw.connectivity.ComponentArgs object

  • TargetApplicationFramework - An rtw.pil.RtIOStreamApplicationFramework object. For example, myPIL.TargetFramework.

  • exeExtension - Name extension of executable file for target system. The extension depends on the toolchain defined by rtw.connectivity.ConfigRegistry. For an embedded target, the extension can be, for example, '.elf', '.abs', '.sre', or '.hex'. For a Windows® development computer target, the extension is '.exe'. For a UNIX® development computer target, the extension is empty, ''.

If you use the template makefile approach to build the PIL application, you must provide a template makefile that includes these tokens:



You can create the template makefile by customizing a copy of one of the supplied ERT template makefiles, for example, ert_unix.tmf or ert_vc64.tmf. You must associate the MAKEFILEBUILDER_TGT and STANDALONE_SUPPRESS_EXE tokens with corresponding makefile rules. For more information, see Customize Template Makefiles.
