I have been making use of the Arduino Makefile from ed.am for some time but recently I needed more functionality from the Makefile.
I ran across a case when needed to check the number of instructions/clock cycles that my C/C++ code was generating. To do this I needed to have a look at the assembly listing that was created. Reading just the assembly is tricky so adding in the C/C++ that creates it makes following it a little easier.
The instructions contained here detail the commands required to generate the debugging information and the flags for avr-objdump which allow the C++/ASM listing to be generated. Typing in all these commands takes time, hence why I am using a Makefile in the first place. What I needed was to add them to the existing ed.am Makefile.
It turns out that the easiest way to do this is not to modify the original Makefile. Instead I created a blank Makefile for my project and include the ed.am Makefile. Having done this I can overload and add to its contents.
This is what I came up with, using “make list” will generate a program listing interspersed with the source code.
