PetaLinux provides an easy way to develop user applications for Zynq and MicroBlaze Linux systems, including building, installing, and debugging. This guide describes how to create and debug one application for Zynq-7000. Let's start by studying the PetaLinux SDK Application Development Guide.
Create a new application
PetaLinux provides a tool to create user application templates for either C or C++. These templates include application source code and Makefiles so that you can easily configure and compile applications for the target, and install them into the root file system. We will add the PrimeNumber application we have already used in our earlier experiments.
1. Create a user application by running petalinux-create -t apps from inside a PetaLinux project on our workstation.
