1 GNU Toolchain
1.1 Microsoft Windows
For Microsoft Windows, I use the YAGARTO packages.
Please visit the YAGARTO website and download and install YAGARTO Tools and YAGARTO GNU ARM toolchain for Windows. You may need to restart your computer for this to work (honestly).
1.2 Mac OS X
For Mac OS X, I use the YAGARTO packages.
Please visit the YAGARTO website and download and install YAGARTO GNU ARM toolchain for Mac OS X. I have not tested this works.
Use the following commands:

2 OS Template
The OS Template file is one I have created which contains enough instructions for the compiler to create a basic Operating System for the Raspberry Pi. It contains no actual assembly code, just a Makefile script and a Linker script.

4 Example Operating Systems
Here are some example operating systems for you to learn from. If you've coded an operating system that you think others could benefit from, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
|Coloured CLI||Alex Chadwick||This example is a small extension to Input01, featuring a coloured text terminal, rather than a black and white one. Special characters are used to change the colour.|
Below are some fonts for you to use in your Operating Systems.
5.1 Monospace, Monochrome 8x16
These fonts are the simplest ones available. They use a 1 to represent a white pixel, a 0 to represent a black pixel, and having representations for the first 128 ASCII characters. The use 16 bytes per character, arranged such that each byte is one complete row, going left to right with higher bits, going top to bottom with later bytes.
|Monospace Default||Free to use/redistribute commercially. Cannot be titled 'Bitstream' or 'Vera'.|
