Yeah, I know that they are not downloaded as they are lib’s that are linked together with the application but there is still the fact that the lib’s are also built with different compilers.
I agree that the difference in size in this specific case (the IP libs) is not representative for the “normal” binary file difference between the ADS- and the GCC compiler.
I mentioned the IP lib’s as an example that the compilers really produce different code size, not as an example of the difference.
One of the original questions was:
And the answer is: The code generated by the GCC compiler is larger than the code generated by the ADS.
Xage:s last question is still kind of interesting since the text in the “Getting started” document states that the Open AT application must be compiled with the same compiler version as the Wavecom core software, but this can’t be true since the developer can choose either the ADS or the GCC compiler without knowing what the Core SW is compiled with. And the information about what compiler (version) the Core SW is build with cannot be found anywhere… (as far as I know)
My guess is that this text is something that did matter in the early versions of Open AT (when there was only support for ADS compiler) and that someone forgot to remove it in the updated document.
More comments are appreciated…
