native mode development environment

 

Linux: A development environment requiring a usermode agent program to be running on the target, in a Linux operating system. In this environment, the debugger and application are compiled with the same toolchain, thus no emulator is required when running in self-hosted mode.

A native mode development environment can only be used for application development.
