2.2. Default compilation tool behavior in the absence of a target system

When you start work on software for an embedded application, you might not be aware of the full technical specifications of the target hardware. For example, you might not know the details of target peripheral devices, the memory map, or even the processor itself.

To enable you to proceed with software development before such details are known, the compilation tools have a default behavior that enables you to start building and debugging application code immediately. It is useful to be aware of this default behavior, so that you appreciate the steps necessary to move from a default build to a fully standalone application.
