    Armv5 or Armv6?

    Hi,

    Can any suggest which the best one to compile with whether ARMv5 or ARMv6, please explain the advantages.

    In nokia forum library it says that GCCE Take only V5 instruction sets, so does the code compiled on ARMv6 will work on Emulator?

    Thanks,
    Venu.

    Thanks for your quick reply,


    The link says switching between the ABI modes and the default compilers that the code compiles on.

    What i need is on what condition do we need to go for ARMV6? is there any specific reason to complie on ARMV6 or ARMV5 itself is fair enough. I just need the differences between the two.

    Thanks,
    Venu.

    You need to know whether you're targeting devices that have an ARM5 based core or ARM6.

    How to find that? whether it comes with mobile specification or can be identifed during installation process?

    You can check available conditions for conditional installation, CPUARCH and CPUABI might provide something like that (they should be good search keys for the SDK Help, for the on-line Library, and for the Symbian site too).
