To ease the writing of DROPS components, this document describes the unified infrastructure of the DROPS source tree. It also describes what files and macros should be used to create the Makefiles needed to compile own components.
This document is based on the work of Lukas Grützmacher, Michel Hohmuth, Jork Löser and Lars Reuther done in 2000. Since then, Frank Mehnert proposed a lot of functionality which is included in this document as well.
This document is also available in .ps and .pdf format. A short abstract is available as abstract.ps and abstract.pdf. You can download this documentation in its various formats at http://os.inf.tu-dresden.de/l4env/.
