# Nerves Toolchain: x86_64_unknown_linux_gnu
[![Hex version](https://img.shields.io/hexpm/v/nerves_toolchain_x86_64_unknown_linux_gnu.svg "Hex version")](https://hex.pm/packages/nerves_toolchain_x86_64_unknown_linux_gnu)
This is a Nerves Toolchain repository.
If you're just trying to use Nerves (i.e., not adding support for a new
target), you don't need to use this directly. In fact, even if you're
developing for a new target, we may already have a cross-compiler available.
This project's purpose is to contain the information for hex.pm so that Nerves
cross-compilers can be referenced in `mix`. See
the scripts used to generate the actual cross-compiler.
This toolchain is used for 64-bit Intel platforms.
