 This ticket is to track adding RTEMS support for the Eclipse TCF. From

 * TCF is a lightweight, extensible network protocol for driving embedded
 systems (targets).

 * On top of the protocol, TCF provides a complete modern debugger for
 C/C++ and Ada, as well as the "Target Explorer" for system management. TCF
 works out of the box for Intel, PPC and ARM Linux targets including the
 Raspberry Pi. It supports Proxying and Tunneling for IoT devices, and is
 particularly strong for multi-process debugging even with slow
 communication links.

 There is an implementation of the agent which is under an appropriate
 license. It is available from

 This likely needs to be supported in a manner that does not duplicate code
 with libdebugger but leverages it. TCF appears to support more than
 debugging though. Part of this ticket will be to identify what features
 need to be supported and how to enable them.
