    9 The Real Time Executive for Multiprocessor Systems (RTEMS) operating
    10 systems is a layered system with each of the public APIs implemented in
    11 terms of a common foundation layer called the SuperCore. RTEMS provides
    12 full capabilities for management of tasks, interrupts time, and multiple
    13 processors in addition to those features typical of generic operating
    14 systems. RTEMS has been implemented in both the Ada and C programming
    15 languages.

    18 
    19   RTEMS development aims to provide a free deterministic real-time operating
    20   system targeted towards deeply embedded systems which is competitive
    21   with closed source products. The RTEMS project encourages the support
    22   and use of standard APIs in order to promote application portability
    23   and ease porting other packages to the RTEMS environment. Source:
    24   https://devel.rtems.org/wiki/Mission_Statement
    25 
    26 The RTEMS development effort uses an open development environment in
    27 which all users collaborate to improve RTEMS. The RTEMS cross development
    28 toolset is based upon the free GNU tools and the open source C Library
    29 newlib. RTEMS supports many host platforms and target architectures.
     8This manual aims to guide the development of RTEMS itself.  You should read this
     9document if you want to participate in the development of RTEMS.  Users of RTEMS
     10may find background information in this manual.  Please refer to the
     11:r:url:`user` and :r:url:`c-user` if you want to know how the RTEMS development
     12environment is set up and how you can develop applications using RTEMS.
