When reading the documentation, I was thoroughly confused. I drew the conclusion that “development platform” is the machine the developer uses for compiling: Windows, Mac or Linux, and “platform” was the target architecture that executes the final binary. But some other places suggest that “development platform” means the target architecture.
Are there established terms to unambigiously separate the two?
If not, I would suggest we use the common industry terms as used here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cross_compiler. “Host” and “target” platforms should be easy to understand.
In fact, I’m trying to make the documentation clearer myself. I can include a clarification of the naming in the documentation edits I will propose.
