    An excellent book for ameatures on both eCos and RTOS

    I recommend this book not only to those who are just beginning to use eCos but also ameatures in the world of RTOS. The audience is treated like a 'child' as Anthony goes on to explain step by step. The accompanying software is complete and gets perfectly installed as described. There are good illustrations accompanying the text that help in understanding the text. It is written more like a story rather than a manual, so it is difficult to put it down once you start reading it.

    Excellent documentation and tutorial

    Anthony has produced a great text on eCos. I wish other Free software was so well documented! I found the porting and RedBoot sections alone to be worth the price of the book. These portions of the eCos source code are difficult to understand, and Anthony does a good job of explaining them. Documentation on the configuration tool is also nice, and not something you'll find anywhere else. Anthony's use of real embedded hardware in the examples (instead of a PC) makes this book infinitely more useful and credible for embedded developers looking at or using eCos in their projects.

    eCos Explained - All in One Place

    Just got the book yesterday and have been reading through it ever since. This book will be an immense help for both first time eCos users as well as those of us who don't have it quite figured out yet. While much of the information presented in the book might be found by wandering about the eCos web site, reading documents, FAQs, and previous postings to the mailing lists, Anthony has presented it all in one place in a consise, logical order. It will be a great help.
