7 Build Environment

This chapter details the supported build environments (developer workstations) for EDK II development. It also covers the tool configuration files that describe the developer's tool environments. Note that the term "development platform" referenced throughout this document means the workstation a developer using to write code and build a target binary. The architecture for the target binary does not have to match the same architecture as the developer's workstation.
Note: Path and Filename elements within the Build Meta-Data files and command-line arguments are case-sensitive in order to support building on UNIX style operating systems.
