We need to install packagegroup-core-sdk to be able to compile on target. To install run the below command.
  • smart install packagegroup-core-sdk

GCC/G++ testing

Once, SDK is installed, you should be able to use GCC/G++ compiler and build your programs on the target directly.

To test this, there are 2 sample programs attached below. Go ahead and download those onto your target. You can compile and build them as shown below.

To compile use:
