To build Native Client modules, you must download and install the Native Client Software Development Kit (SDK).
The SDK includes the following:
- support for multiple Pepper versions
- The SDK contains bundles that let you compile Native Client modules using different versions of the Pepper API (e.g., Pepper 30 or Pepper Canary). Review the Release Notes for a description of the new features included in each Pepper version to help you decide which bundle to use to develop your application. In general, Native Client modules compiled using a particular Pepper version will work in corresponding versions of Chrome and higher. For example, a module compiled using the Pepper 30 platform will work in Chrome 30 and higher.
- update utility
naclsdk.baton Windows) lets you download new bundles that are available, as well as new versions of existing bundles.
- Each platform includes three toolchains—one for Portable Native Client (PNaCl) applications, one for compiling architecture-specific Native Client applications with newlib, and a third native NaCl toolchain for compiling with glibc. Newlib and glibc are two different implementations of the C standard library. All toolchains contain Native Client-compatible versions of standard compilers, linkers, and other tools. See this document to help you choose the right toolchain.
- Each example in the SDK includes C or C++ source files and header files illustrating how to use NaCl and Pepper, along with a Makefile to build the example using each of the toolchains.
- The SDK includes a number of additional tools, which you can use for tasks such as validating Native Client modules and running modules from the command line.
