This project is simple. Setup and configure a pre-existing project (LZMA Decompressor) in a cross-platform environment. The main project should be compiled (ANSI C) in a Cygwin/GCC environment (Windows 32) and destined to run on a MIPS (R2000/R3000) processor.
This project should use the publicly available LZMA SDK ([[url removed, login to view]]), and specifically, 5.1 Single-call Decompressing, from it.
This project should accomplish the following:
* Decompress a specific LZMA compressed file at address 0xBFC48000, to 0x80010000.
The target device is at follows:
Embedded CPU: 300 MHz.
Architecture: MIPS (R2000/R3000)
Flash: 2 Megabytes (Where the decompressor will be stored).
DRAM: 8 Megabytes
Note: The DRAM and Flash controller are already initialized, so you can read data from Flash as if it were RAM.
1) Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done.
2) Deliverables must be in ready-to-run condition, as follows (depending on the nature of the deliverables):
a) For web sites or other server-side deliverables intended to only ever exist in one place in the Buyer's environment--Deliverables must be installed by the Seller in ready-to-run condition in the Buyer's environment.
b) For all others including desktop software or software the buyer intends to distribute: A software installation package that will install the software in ready-to-run condition on the platform(s) specified in this bid request.
3) All deliverables will be considered "work made for hire" under U.S. Copyright law. Buyer will receive exclusive and complete copyrights to all work purchased. (No GPL, GNU, 3rd party components, etc. unless all copyright ramifications are explained AND AGREED TO by the buyer on the site per the coder's Seller Legal Agreement).
The program 'should' compile under Cygwin Linux (Windows), however if need be, I would also accept a Linux only version. All C source code should be GCC compatible.
And since this is a cross-platform project, this executable should run under MIPS R2000/R3000.
