ARM/MSVC Build Environment Script

I added a Perl script to the repository Build/CopyBuildToolset.cmd at  More details on the repo is here.

The script documentation is lacking and I’ll add more in the next few days.

The script populates the Build directory with a toolset from the Windows 7 DDK/SDK and Visual Studio 11 for the ARM installations and copies minimal Windows SDK headers to build the supporting Windows based tools for PE image conversion and ROM image signature for the BeagleBoard as part of the build toolset.

The script uses the MSVCToolChainForARM.INI file which describes the source locations and target layout for the tool chain.  A few sample snippets from the .INI are below.   The first column describes the file source which is one of ddk, sdk or msvc.

ddk,    bin\x86\amd64\build.exe,                        amd64
ddk,    bin\x86\build.exe,                              x86
ddk,    bin\x86\binplace.exe,                           x86
sdk,    Bin\rc.exe,                                     x86
sdk,    Bin\RcDll.Dll,                                  x86
sdk,    Bin\x64\rc.exe,                                 amd64
sdk,    Bin\x64\RcDll.Dll,                              amd64
sdk,    Include\BaseTsd.h,                              sdk\inc
msvc,   VC\bin\x86_arm\armasm.exe,                      vc\x86_arm
msvc,   VC\bin\x86_arm\c1.dll,                          vc\x86_arm
msvc,   VC\bin\x86_arm\c1ast.dll,                       vc\x86_arm

The first column describes the file source which is one of ddk, sdk or msvc.  These are currently defined in the script as below and can be configured with command line options –ddk, –msvc, –sdk respectively.   The script currently assumes it is running under the beagle.cmd environment and that BEAGLE_BUILD_PATH has been set to the Build directory of the enlistment.

my %srcPathMap = (
  ddk     => 'C:\\WinDDK\\7600.16385.1',
  msvc    => 'C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Microsoft Visual Studio 11.0',
  sdk     => 'C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Microsoft SDKs\\Windows\\v7.0A'
Given this configuration, the build script copies the files as described in the .INI (second column) to the Build directory and target destination directories (third column).
When completed, a CMD.exe launching beagle.cmd specifying the ARM build type will be ready to build the XLoader image.
c:\windows\System32\cmd.exe /k c:\beagleboard\build\beagle.cmd arm
C:\BeagleBoard>cd OS

C:\BeagleBoard>rem bcz is an alias for build.exe -cZ
