The Neutrino Programmer's Guide is intended for developers who are building applications that will run under the QNX Neutrino Realtime Operating System.
|Depending on the nature of your application and target platform, you may also need to refer to Building Embedded Systems. If you're using the Integrated Development Environment, see the IDE User's Guide.|
This table may help you find what you need in the Programmer's Guide:
